Reviews for Crayons to Classrooms
I was amazed at the generosity of this organization. My shopping experience was efficient and well organized. The organization has this system down pat. My students were so excited about the new supplies. My lessons are much more engaging with the proper tools. Thank you so much!
Today I wrote a $7.00 ck for each one of my self-contained special ed students to go to a field trip to young's dairy for a hayride and a pumpkin. I have 16 students so that came to well over 100 dollars. Luckily I have had the opportunity to go to crayons to classrooms since the first day it opened. They have generously provided for my students who are very much in need.
Steve is always there with a smile and kind attitude and yesterday was no different.
Thank you from room 1202 at Dayton Boys Prep. Pics to follow.
Absolutely Amazing! Received so much more than I ever imagined! So thankful, and so are my students!!!

I recently visited Crayons to Classroom for the first time and I was very impressed. I am a first grade, first year teacher. This organization is such a blessing! I was able to get so many supplies, craft items, and prizes for my students. As teachers we spend so much of our own money on our classrooms and to have help is so amazing! Thank you Crayons to Classroom and everyone involved who makes this place possible!
This organization is awesome, easy, and a true benefit to my students! I have found just the right items to supplement my supply closet, and to provide for otherwise unobtainable classroom goals! Let's keep this going!
Crayons to Classrooms moved to a more modern facility, and I was fortunate enough to visit the first day they reopened. The set-up is wonderful, the staff is delightful, and the available materials are much appreciated.
Crayons to Classrooms has provided supplies students in my district need. I have received a wide variety of supplies such as pencils, paper, notebooks, paints, ribbon, books, trays for organizing papers, backpacks, and lunchbags. Thank you for your generosity.
I am a teacher for Dayton Public Schools. Many of my students come to school without much needed school supplies, book bags, or even some come without socks in the winter time. Crayons 2 Classrooms have been a life savor to our district. With each of my shopping trips, I receive between $1,200 and $1,500 worth of supplies that I can give to my classroom, as well as share with the entire school. Teachers spend so much of their own money to buy supplies and this nonprofit is a huge help to save our pocketbook! The students are so excited when I give the school supplies to them and they are happy and excited to send thank you pictures to the donors. Without Crayons to Classrooms it would be much more difficult to ensure that my kindergartners had everything they need to be successful with school! I appreciate their help so much that I volunteer when needed. I wish each urban school district had the same opportunity to shop at a Crayons 2 Classrooms store.
A terrific provider of supplies for teachers in under resourced schools/classrooms. Well organized and helpful. I am grateful that Crayons to Classrooms is available for teachers in our area.
They provide many things that I need in my classroom. I love going their twice a year to get supplies I am running low on and find many prize box items.
C2C has been very helpful in supplying my classroom with much needed items. Many of my students cannot afford to get the supplies that they need, and C2C fills that void. It keeps me from spending my money to buy items that I need. C2C has been a great resource for me.
