I have been to other organizations like this in the past, and this is by far the best one I have been to. Almost all of the supplies were new, very clearly labeled, and it's an easy system to figure out. As a teacher at a low-income district where all students receive free lunch, I am so grateful to be able to find free supplies for my students. They don't just have basic supplies like pencils and paper; they have binders, bookbags, resources for teachers, and so much more. I was super impressed and will definitely continue to go once a semester!
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!
I have had the opportunity to be a Board member of Dayton Crayons to Classrooms and be a part of the initial planning committee to form the organization. The Board and staff are committed to the organization's Mission. Staff and Board members do not hesitate to step up and support Crayons to Classrooms. Our community immediately and directly benefits from the organization.
I have had the pleasure of seeing the great work of Dayton Crayons to Classrooms serving the teachers and students throughout our community. We serve many schools in several communities and counties in the Miami Valley area. The teachers are so grateful for the materials. One thing I find especially fun are the donations of materials that are not necessarily school supplies. We receive art, furniture and other donations that we accept. Teachers always find a use for these, they are very creative. The Dayton Crayons to Classrooms staff always find a way to utilize the uncommon materials.
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.
I volunteer for Crayons to Classrooms and the commitment on their part is intense and therefore it inspires us as volunteers to give our best. The jobs that we do as volunteers helps keep things ready for the teacher with few resources and they are so grateful. It is great to see it grow each year and be able to know students are benefiting from these supplies. A very worthy organization.
I volunteered at Crayons to Classrooms in Dayton as a UD student. I saw how dedicated and caring the teachers are and how under-resourced the school districts are. This organization solves the problem that so many teachers are facing! Great organization.
