Review for Crayons to Classrooms, Dayton, OH, USA
As a new teacher in a barely-funded charter school, I was overwhelmed by the financial needs for my classroom. How was I supposed to provide effective lessons without supplies? Luckily, a colleague at my school referred me to Crayons to Classrooms! Through their amazing program, I was able to shop twice, and I also volunteered with my family at their store in order to earn an additional shopping trip. Each shopping trip valued over $1,200 in supplies for my classroom. C2C truly made my first years of teaching so much easier though their donations. I've been shopping with them every year since 2012!
Fast forward three years later, the Memorial Day tornados devastated my community. Our district was contacted by Crayons to Classrooms who hosted a "Stuff the Bus" supply drive for our community AND donated 1,500 backpacks stuffed with supplies to every, single student in our district. They also gave each teacher impacted by the tornados an additional shopping trip before the year started to make sure the teachers were prepared for the year.
Crayons to Classrooms is truly about supplying students and teachers with the supplies they need to be successful in the classroom. They have truly been a lifesaver for students and teachers within my community and the greater Dayton area.
