It has been heartwarming to see the response so far to the annual Crayons to Calculators campaign!
The goal of this event is to provide over 10,000 full backpacks to local students who cannot afford the basic supplies they need to succeed in school. The cost of even the basic necessary school supplies is easily over $75.
There are over 15,000 students from economically challenged families in the Boulder Valley School District and St. Vrain Valley School District.
Crayons to Calculators has donated over 200,000 pencils, 38,000 pens (and more glue sticks than you’d care to count).
Can you help? You can donate a backpack. Go to the website at, download the school supplies list and help fill up the backpacks. Or you can even volunteer at one of our two backpack-stuffing facilities, in Boulder and Longmont.
With your help, we are sending students to school this fall who are equipped and ready to learn!

Watch for updates.
