Volunteer to Shop

In order to expand our program to teachers who work in schools that do not currently qualify for our services, a volunteer program has been developed so they can earn a shopping visit to Crayons to Classrooms. The particulars are:

Teachers who are currently ineligible can earn a shopping visit by volunteering for 5 hours, up to a limit of two trips, one each semester.

Teachers who are currently eligible can earn one additional shopping visit per year by volunteering for 5 hours.

A shopping visit can be redeemed by making arrangements with Crayons to Classrooms staff.

Teachers must meet the following requirements to earn a shopping trip by volunteering:

  • Must be a certified teacher
  • Work in a school serving children living in poverty
  • Work in a school in Clark, Darke, Greene, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, or Warren county
  • Private preschool, daycare, and childcare programs do not qualify for shopping

You can see the list of eligible schools here.  If you would like to volunteer to earn a shopping trip for yourself, please contact:
