Between July 1st and Dec. 21st of 2013, we donated NEARLY 60,000 CRAYONS!!!!!!
While keeping a running total of all our collected and donated crayons has been a challenge, and was certainly more difficult in our first year, we are thrilled with this latest statistic.
Thanks to The Education Partnership and their fabulous volunteers, who help us account for all the crayons which we distribute through their humbling and amazing program. The Education Partnership distributed over 49,000 of those crayons to children in and around the Pittsburgh area.
And we are excited when we think that some of our crayons went overseas last year to village schools in Morocco.
We hope to continue expanding our reach both across the state of Pennsylvania and across the globe. With the kindness and assistance of so many volunteers, these goals are truly realistic.
