It's time, Fill That Bus School Supply Drive!
As you know, 'Fill That Bus!' is a community-wide supply drive to help stock the shelves at Crayons2Calculators (C2C) with basic school supplies. Each year, Crayons2Calculators serve the educational and creative needs of students by providing free school supplies to classroom teachers through generous donations of financial sponsorships and supplies from the community. Last year, through the generosity of donors like you, over $140,000 of supplies were available to all teachers working within Durham Public Schools. This meant that teachers did not have to cover the gap in supplies out of their own pockets.

Since 2006, Crayons2Calculators (C2C) has served the educational and creative needs of students in Durham Public Schools by providing FREE school supplies to classroom teachers.
Teachers “shop” at the warehouse store C2C operates with the support of individuals, corporations, and grants. Teachers from the highest need schools visit the warehouse on a regular schedule to pick out supplies.
Teachers from other schools are invited to Giveaway Events throughout the school year. Teachers and students need supplies to enrich the instructional program. In many schools, teachers pay for supplies out of their own pockets because supply funds are limited and some parents and guardians are unable to provide the supplies needed.
The 2019 Fill That Bus will run from July 22-August 22. Visit our Fill That Bus page for more information, Including how you can get involved.
