Keeping Students Warm this Winter

When the weather gets cold, students may be coming to school without a winter coat or even socks. We need your help to stock our shelves with hats, mittens, scarves, and socks for our teachers to shop for during their second semester shop. No student should brave the cold without proper warm clothing – if you would like to make or donate hats, mittens, scarves, or socks, email Dave Hargrove at d.hargrove@crayonstoclassrooms.org to schedule a drop-off time.

*We will not be accepting donations from December 10th-26th due to the holiday and year-end inventory. We will resume accepting donations on December 27th!

Crayons to Classrooms strives to ensure that every student in need has the tools for success. Read about our efforts to realize that vision.

This summer I had a fun experience when I accompanied our church youth group to volunteer at Crayons to Classroom. We had so much fun talking and creating little math kits for teachers to use in their classrooms. And then today I got to be a shopper! WOW, what a great time! I am so excited to go to school and show my coworkers and students all the great items I got today. I am amazed at all the great items from Lysol wipes to calculators to a tape dispenser to notebooks, and on and on! What a great place that helps our community! I have taught over 24 years and have never been gifted so much product for my classroom! Thank you so much!
