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.

I am a volunteer with Crayons to Classrooms and enjoy seeing the wonderful resources and supplies that are provided to teachers in my area to help their students succeed! The staff is helpful, friendly and always willing to help out. When students have the supplies to succeed we all succeed as a community.

Amazing!! As a teacher in a high poverty school, my only options for getting needed materials are: A- My own pocket, or B- Crayons to Classrooms. The organization has helped so very much with an abundance and variety of needed materials. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I am not a teacher, but have donated my time and items to Crayons to Classrooms. My business partner and I go to garage sales and buy up all school supplies we can find, then take them down to the donation center. We love teachers and enjoy supporting Crayons to Classrooms.
