In my life as a teacher, - I've taught for 28 yrs. - there are few things that have warmed my heart more than the gracious people who show such generosity through their donations that we get free of charge. Sometimes teaching can be a thankless job, but Crayons to Classrooms always feels like a great, big THANK YOU! I work in a school where 99% of the students are at or below the poverty level. So often, they come without basic items they need, but because of Crayons to Classrooms, they have everything they need, and it doesn't come out of my pocket! Thank so much! You are a God-sent blessing!

Excellent!!

I have worked with organizations that give teachers a stipend. This is the first experience, even when asked, where no stipend was mentioned. I appreciate the opportunity to shop and noticed all the loyal supporters in Montgomery County. Thank you as I look forward to shopping this next semester...

Sincerely,

Crayons to Classrooms consistently provides excellent selections of materials for use in classrooms and superb support staff, mostly volunteers, who are helpful and knowledgeable. The organization provides critically needed supplies to students who need and appreciate them. They are wonderful!

I have had the opportunity to be able to benefit from this wonderful program. This program allows me and fellow colleagues to receive school supplies that are desperately needed in the classroom. I was able to shop for pencils, crayons, rulers, notebooks, and even book bags. These items are always needed in the classrooms so the shopping trips from Crayons to Classrooms really help out a lot. It's a wonderful program and our school World of Wonder is very blessed to be a part of the program. I want to take this time to thank all the sponsors from the community for all your support.

God bless you all,

Crayons to Classroom is a fantastic nonprofit organization that I could not do without. They have many items for students and teachers that are vey useful. I am a special education teacher, who continuously buys supplies for the children. The items donated to this nonprofit organization helps to defray some of my costs. Businesses and other types of organizations donate crayons, paper, pencils, books, notebooks, journals, bookbags, poster board, post-it notes, cleaning supplies, etc. Thanks to all the businesses and organizations who make our teaching experiences worthwhile. Keep up what you're doing.

Many of the students I serve in my building are from families experiencing economic difficulties. As a consequence, many of these same students do not come to school prepared with the proper resources to be successful. It is a joy to have an organization like Crayons to Classrooms that provides teachers like myself with free supplies to give to children in need, and I fully understand this would not be possible without the contributions of many individuals and companies who donate the items to Crayons to Classrooms. Thank you to everyone involved and to future sponsors for your generosity and concern.

I am a principal and my teachers have benefitted from Crayons to Classrooms for years. They are one of the kindest and most helpful organizations for teachers in our area. Teachers regularly spend much of their own money on supplies to benefit students weekly. The opportunity to shop at Crayons to Classrooms helps ease the financial burden that many teachers face. We are very appreciative of Crayons to Classrooms.

I am a teacher and I have been to Crayons for Classroom about 4 times. My experience has been nothing but GREAT! The materials that we are given for our classrooms and students is WONDERFUL. I really appreciate all the donors and the items they provide. My students really benefit from the school supplies I bring back to the classroom. The volunteers who work for Crayons for Classrooms are friendly, helpful and very patient. This is a Great experience.
Thank You
