C2C has been very helpful in supplying my classroom with much needed items. Many of my students cannot afford to get the supplies that they need, and C2C fills that void. It keeps me from spending my money to buy items that I need. C2C has been a great resource for me.

I can't say enough about this organization. As a teacher you either by it yourself, or you are fortunate enough to get the support you need here. I wouldn't want to think about the amount I would have to spend without this organization.

My class loves when I go shopping at Crayons to Classroom. They especially love the new school supplies because other than for the first of school, their supplies are usually not replenished from home. They also love the variety of other unique items I put in the prize box from shopping there.

The supplies I receive for my classroom are so helpful to me and my students. Supplies can be expensive and teaching in a low income community can be a challenge to help the students have what they need. C2C enables us to serve our students with much needed items. Thank you so much!

Crayons to Classrooms is an amazing organization that allows me to provide more than just minimal supplies to my classroom. As everyone knows, supplies can and do get very expensive. C2C provides so many different supplies I may not otherwise be able to have for my students. The staff is also so very helpful.

Last year I heard about the wonderful organization that helps teachers. I contacted them and found out my school was listed to receive their resources. It was my second year teaching and I was purchasing everything myself. What a blessing C2C was for me. The tools I received helped me to be a better teacher. I was able to use all of the curriculum books, folders, posters and decorations. The Yobi box was icing on the cake. I teach a special education class located in a low income area. My students had their own pencil bags filled with everything they needed too be successful at school and at home. Thanks C2C!

This is a wonderful resource for school supplies! Many of my students come to school with nothing at the beginning of the year. Crayons to Classroom has everything they need!
