How It Works

Shopping at Crayons to Classrooms is simple and fun!

  1. Eligible teachers may sign up to shop on a specific day and time. You can sign up here: Schedule a Visit
  2. Come to our store on your appointed day and time. Parking** is available in front of our store; directions are available here.
  3. Please check-in upon arrival. Bring a copy of your confirmation or a photo ID (i.e. driver’s license or school ID).
  4. You will be given instructions, a copy of the day’s Shopping Form, and a shopping cart. We will have some small bags and boxes available; please feel free to bring your own reusable bags!
  5. During shopping, simply select what you would like and write the amount on the form provided. Please respect the item limit as you shop,
  6. At the end of your shopping trip, you will receive your “Homework” – a list of donors for you and/or your students to write thank you notes. Simple acknowledgments of gratitude let our donors hear from you and help us maintain a flow of repeat donations to replenish our materials. Please write thank you notes to our donors.

If you are a teacher and have any questions about the shopping process, please contact our Teacher Facilitator, Carlye Rausch, at or call (937) 528-6404.

**While we strongly support carpooling, remember that you will leave DC2C with supplies. A car packed with excited teachers may not have room for all of your new stuff!
