Crayons To Classrooms has helped to make our kindergarten year more successful. Many of our students have few or no school supplies. We often spend out of pocket to ensure that each child has necessary supplies. The generous donors of Crayons to Classrooms have helped to take the edge off of our classroom expenses. The students get so excited when they receive new things, and we are extremely grateful for the generosity. My students recently told me that I was a "cool teacher" because I have "cool stuff". Thanks to Crayons to Classrooms for my "cool" points with my students. YOU"RE THE BEST!

Crayons to Classrooms is an amazing program!! As a teacher we often have students who can not afford of their school supplies, Crayons to Classrooms is a great resource to help with this. They also have excellent teaching materials to help with classroom instruction. Recently I was able to pick up some Early North American folders filled with information about the history of the people of North America!! Thank you for all you do to help!!!

As a kindergarten teacher, there are many needs that come are way. I teach in a low socio-economic elementary school. Often the children are lucky to eat let alone have money available for school supplies. Crayons to Classrooms offers teachers the opportunity to overcome these difficulties for their students. It also helps that I don't have to take it out of my own pocket. We are blessed to have a nonprofit like Crayons to Classrooms for support!

I teach in a school district in which many/most students do not bring their own supplies to school and our teacher resources are very limited. Crayons to Classrooms has been a terrific supplement to the items I purchase for students and my classroom in general. Having them as a resource has helped my students to be able to complete projects, have book bags, and added to our classroom books. For some students, I have been able to supply hats and gloves in the winter for those who are without.

As a teacher in a low-socioeconomic district, it is difficult to ask our students to bring in classroom supplies. It was very difficult for me to provide my students with organizational tools such as binders, dividers, etc. because to provide them, I had to purchase them myself. With the help of Crayons to Classrooms, however, I am able to provide my students with ANY supplies they need to be successful in the classroom. The staff is amazing, and the materials they provide are life saving! I don't know what I'd do without them!

I work in an inner city school with wonderful students and families. Often times, I purchase all their supplies because of money issues and availability. I do this out of love. When I was able to receive donated materials it took a burden from me. My students and families are forever grateful for the help received. When I return from a shopping trip, they are eager to help me put materials away. They also know that they can receive materials that might get taken, or broken or misplaced because of the generous giving from others. Letters of thanks that are written are sincere and heartfelt.

WOW! Crayons to Classrooms is a life saver! They have so many supplies (pencils, paper, crayons, markers, backpacks...) that my students need on a daily basis, but cannot always afford to purchase. They also provide 'extras' that are fun and practical for the students and teachers (bulletin board toppers, disinfectant wipes, chapter books, socks...). The volunteers are extremely friendly and are genuinely happy to help in any way you need them too. Crayons to Classrooms is top rate!

Thank you Crayons to Classrooms! I have had many students in need of supplies and have had to come out of pocket to ensure that they have the tools they need for a successful school year. You have made this job so much easier with the resources you have offered us in the Dayton Public Schools District. Because of you; there are no excuses about lack of paper, pencils, or bookbags to carry student supplies.

I have also been able to complete many more hands-on projects because of the items you have offered; it has expanded my creativity as a teacher.

Thank you again!
