Grading Our Performance: 2021-2022

Each year, Crayons to Classrooms makes a significant difference in the lives of students and teachers. Last year, we served 46,971 students in 125 schools including 6 childcare centers and 6 rural pilot schools in the Dayton region. In those schools, 60% or more of the student population is enrolled in free or reduced lunch programming via the National School Lunch Program. The information below provides statistical insight into the impact that our services and programs are having here in the Miami Valley. All data was collected from June 1, 2021 through May 31, 2022.

“Thank you, Crayons to Classrooms for serving as an answer to prayer. Our communities are better because of your organization. Your dedication and contributions remind me of the proverb, "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." I am forever grateful for the donated school supplies that support all of our students!”
