This past summer I volunteered to work a day at Crayons to Classrooms and helped make multiple packs of items for teachers! We got to socialize, collaborate, and talk as volunteers. Then, because I volunteered my time, I got a free shopping trip. When I went for my shopping trip, I got amazing, quality items for my students and classroom! I can’t wait to volunteer again and know that I get to help in making and then receiving.
