The 2014 Crayons to Calculators school-supplies drive is in full-effect! Having the necessary supplies is a critical component to eliminating the achievement gap, and right here in Boulder and St. Vrain Valley there are thousands of kids who cannot afford basic school supplies.
Crayons to Calculators provides over 9,000 backpacks full of supplies to students across Boulder Valley School District and St. Vrain Valley School District. With your help we can reach every student who needs a backpack and school supplies, thus equipping every student within our two districts with the basic tools they need to succeed from day-one.
There are several simple and fun ways to help provide school supplies to kids in need. You can donate a backpack full of supplies yourself (a fun and impactful activity to do with your own children), you can donate money to enable us to purchase school supplies ($60-$80 fills a backpack with supplies), or you can donate your time stuffing backpacks at our facility inside the Arapahoe Campus school at 6500 Arapahoe.
