Stuff the Bus Amazing Results!

Our Stuff the Bus event was a huge success this year, raising $54,623 in funds and over $29,000 in donated supplies from more than 30 organizations who hosted supply drives in July and August.
These donations help to fill the shelves of our Teacher Resource Center as we continue to provide local teachers with resources for their students as they start the school year. Throughout August, 386 teachers visited Crayons to Classrooms and received a total of $381,930 in free school supplies for their classrooms.
It’s not too late to show your support! With your help, Crayons to Classrooms can continue to offer educational resources that empower teachers to inspire our students.

Crayons to Classrooms is on Summer Vacation!

Our 2020-2021 shopping year is over and we are on summer break!  We had over 2800 shopping trips and more than $3M in supplies distributed during the school year! 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!
