For students to succeed, they must first have the tools to thrive. Crayons to Classrooms is committed to providing those tools to at-risk children in the Greater Dayton Region, including Clark, Darke, Greene, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, and Warren counties. We encourage community donations while also leveraging an extensive collection of supply chain partners to secure essential school supplies at significantly reduced costs. Then, we distribute those items at no cost to teachers in our downtown Dayton store. This committed collaboration between business leaders, individual donors and volunteers helps to assure equal access for students in our community and fuel their love of learning.

“I love being able to say “yes” virtually every time a student asks “Do you have ___?” From pencils to folders, to bookbags when their straps break, to hats in the winter, my Teacher Resource Center keeps me stocked with what my students need without having to empty my pockets.”
