Fill that Bus!
School Supply Drive
Fill That Bus! is a major community-wide event which collects school supplies for Crayons2Calculators. Approximately 200 businesses, associations and neighborhoods participate by hosting collection bins and encouraging their employees, clients, and members to donate school supplies.
Bring school supplies to the Kick Off event and/or make cash/credit card contributions. The 2014 Fill That Bus! drive brought in more than $100,000 in supplies and monetary donations. This year’s goal is $120,000.
In 2014-15 C2C gave away more than $183,000 of school supplies to Durham Public Schools classroom teachers. We only used $10,000 to purchase supplies and all the rest was donated by the local community!
Crayons2Calculators is a Durham grassroots non-profit that serves the educational and creative needs of Durham Public School students by providing classroom teachers with FREE school supplies. C2C operates a warehouse store near downtown Durham where Durham Public School teachers are invited to “shop” for the tools they need to educate the next generation.
