Crayons to Calculators

Since 2008, Crayons to Calculators has ditributed thousands of backpacks filled with school supplies to students throughout the St. Vrain Valley. A partnership between the Education Foundation for the St. Vrain Valley and Impact on Education, the annual program eases the burden on families with financial need and ensures that students have what they need to start the year off right.
