- Welcome back, Teachers!
This week, DC2C kicked off the 20-21 school year with early shopping opportunities for our registered teachers. Our store has been cleaned and sanitized, the shelves fully stocked, and new safety measures are in place to keep our teachers safe and healthy.
Teachers must wear a mask while shopping, and we encourage social distancing, and each teacher still gets to leave our store with a shopping cart full of useful supplies!

- 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.
