Crayons to Classrooms is on Summer Vacation!

Our 2018-2019 shopping year is over and we are on summer break!  We had over 3000 shopping trips and more than $2M in supplies distributed during the school year, as well as celebrating or 10th anniversary. Our store will be closed for the summer, but the staff will be working hard behind the scenes to prepare for next year, making changes and improvements of all kinds.

If you are interested in volunteering over the summer break, contact Carlye Rausch at c.rausch@dc2c.org.

Have a great Summer!
