Crayons to Classrooms is a great resource. I have shopped several times in the past. It is nice to get things that can be used in the classroom and to provide to students who are less fortunate. The last time I attended I got a carton of book bags. I have distributed two of these to students in need, and have seen a number of the bags coming through the doors at the beginning of the day. Thank you for the great service that you provide to teachers and students everywhere.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get more donors to offer more items. Batteries for instance are available some of the time. Overall it is a great organization.

Crayons to Classroom has helped me, my students and our school in a dramatic way. Through their help I am able to provide much needed school supplies to my students that they are unable to obtain from their parents or guardians for various reasons. I was able to give book bags to my students that could not afford them. This has been a real problem. The kids without book bags lose their things and begin to slip in their studies. I have also been able to provide rewards to students through this organization's generous gifts when the children accomplish a goal such as honor roll, high honors, perfect attendance and good behavior. It is expensive to provide items for students especially in under privileged areas. My own finances in the past have been strained because I not only was providing for my own family but also spending a lot of my own money on my students for things that they could not afford. I am so thankful for this organization. The environment when you "shop" is inviting, organized and all the volunteers are friendly and helpful.

I am a preschool teacher in an inner city school in Dayton who has been served by Crayon to Classroom for two years. Without this wonderful charity, I would not be able to provide for my classroom as supplies are very expensive. I have been able to have wonderful projects with my students due to the generosity of Crayon to Classrooms that I would not have been able to do without their help.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Change nothing. They are perfect just the way they are.

The school budget is very tight in my district right now. Crayons to Classrooms has been a blessing in allowing me to pick up free materials that enhance my lessons and help me meet the needs of all my students. I have many students that come to school unprepared, through no fault of their own, because the finances are just not available.

Crayons to Classrooms have helped tremendously in my classroom. My students have the necessary supplies needed in order to be successful in the classroom. Students who benefit from the school supplies also qualify for free and reduced lunches. Most students come to school unprepared and teachers have to dig into their own pockets to provide the necessary supplies. I want to thank Crayons to clasrooms for their continued support to all teachers students and parents. This service is greatly appreciated!!

It is amazing how this non-profit company has been able to take the stress off me as a teacher to provide school supplies and other items for my classroom. Many of my students come to school with the bare minimum of items needed for them to be successful in school. They are able to be provided with the supplies and gain a better, more productive education. Also, they are able to learn a valuable life experience about people who donoate to children they don't even know. I apprecaite the generosity of those individuals who have been able to help my classroom and teach my students a valuable experience.

keep doing what your are doing Crayons to Classroom!

I am a small group instructor in a high school. Most of my students are from struggling families and I do not make as much money as teachers make. Therefore, Crayons To Classrooms has helped me greatly to provide supplies for my students without having to spend my own limited income for them. I greatly appreciate the service this organization provides.

I cannot think of any changes at this time. They do a great job.

What an amazing place. Teaching can be very expensive and Crayons to Classrooms helps cut down the costs of running a classroom. Not only do they provide much needed materials to help our students, they make every teacher that walks in the door feel special and important. We are so blessed to have them in our community.
