City of Dayton Partners with DC2C to Provide Kits

Dayton’s Crayons to Classrooms (DC2C) and the City of Dayton have partnered to support two Dayton Public Schools with classroom supplies. During the month of January, City of Dayton employees held a fundraising campaign to sponsor the purchase of school supply kits for the schools. Each kit contains approximately 30 essential, age-appropriate school supply items that could last a student an entire school year. The campaign was incredibly successful; employees raised enough funds to sponsor over 800 kits. The two schools chosen to receive the kits are Wogaman Middle School and Horace Mann Montessori Elementary School.
