Tools That Transform

Crayons to Classrooms provides essential supplies to teachers of at-risk students across the Greater Dayton Region for free to ensure that every child has the tools they need to engage, learn, grow, and fully experience the transformative power of education. Last year alone, we served over 40,000 students. Your support can help transform lives across our community.

You Can Help This Summer

We have many opportunities available this summer to help create our Classroom Solutions products. Using donated supplies, like paper, cardstock, and yarn, and tools such as die cut machines and paper cutters, volunteers create new and useful products for our teachers.
If your company, friends, or organization would be interested in bringing a group to volunteer on-site this summer, please contact Carlye Rausch at c.rausch@crayonstoclassrooms.org.

We rely on the support of our community to help us secure and distribute school supplies at no cost to teachers of students in need.
