Review for Crayons to Classrooms, Dayton, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My company has supported projects for Dayton Crayons to Classrooms (DC2C) for the past 4 years as part of our annual 'Global Cares Day'...a day set aside to shine a spotlight on Corporate Responsibility and volunteerism. Each year DC2C very carefully analyzes a key need for the community and helps create a project to serve that need. We have assembled: 10,000 test prep kits to help underprivileged children be prepared for standardized tests; 2,000 literacy kits for specific grades to help boost reading proficiency levels for 3rd grade reading; and summer school kits so children can have basic supplies for their summer studies. DC2C's careful analysis of current community needs always seems to be right on point for what will make the biggest impact in these under-funded schools. The proof is in the letters our company receives from teachers and students thanking us for these most basic supplies that have made a really big impact in their lives. It is heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time as you read these letters, written in crayon with personalized artwork from the students. Through my personal experiences, I can unequivocally vouch for the the great work DC2C is doing to help boost the learning experiences of underprivileged children in the Greater Dayton area.
