Crayons to Classrooms touches the lives of countless educators and children, in ways few of us could imagine. As a board member and administrator for one of Ohio's largest urban districts, I have witnessed how a gift of basic school supplies can transform and energize a classroom of young learners. Since opening their doors in 2009, Dayton Crayons to Classrooms (DC2C) has provided over $2 million in school supplies to teachers of students in need. DC2C is a free resource center for teachers from under-funded K-12 schools serving children who live in poverty in the Miami Valley area of Ohio. In partnership with local businesses, individual donors, and community volunteers, DC2C lifts at-risk children's level and love of learning by providing them the basic school supplies that are essential to academic achievement at no cost to the children's teachers, families, or schools.
