Schools will be starting their classes in just a few days, and the volunteers at Crayons to Calculators are hard at work, collecting school supplies for students in need across both the Boulder Valley and St. Vrain Valley School Districts.
They’ve collected an amazing 9,500 backpacks full of supplies to help send these students start school on the right foot.
But that means we’re still looking for 500 more backpacks and supplies. The cost of basic school supplies (crayons, pens, pencils, glue sticks, notebooks, and calculators) can add up to over $75 per student. That’s a hardship for many struggling families.
Can you help?
• Make an easy monetary donation online at
• Go to the store and stuff a backpack with all of the supplies on the donor supply list provided by Crayons to Calculators.
• We can still use some volunteers to help stuffing the packs, too!
Your donations will ensure that these supplies get into the hands of students all across the region who cannot afford these basic supplies.
