Over the last 12 years, Crayons2Calculators has supplied Durham Teachers with more than $1,000,000 in school supplies. Teachers “shop” for free at the warehouse store C2C operates with the support of individuals, corporations, and grants. Classrooms with at least 65% of students receiving free and reduced lunch visit the warehouse on a regular schedule to pick out the supplies they need. Our teachers do not pay for the services and materials provided. C2C serves the educational and creative needs of students in the Durham Public School system by providing free school supplies to classroom teachers. Teacher report that they spend on average $1000 of their own money to supply their classroom each year. To donate or for more information about C2C, visit www.crayons2calculators.org or contact Co-Executive Directors Barbara Parker or Eunice Sanders at firstname.lastname@example.org.
