Crayons to Calculators School Supply Drive

Do A Mitzvah!

Crayons To Calculators with Kids - SmallerEvery child deserves to start the school year off on the right foot; with a new backpack and the proper school supplies. Thanks to Crayons to Calculators and the Boulder Jewish Community, we can make this happen.

With the high costs of school supplies, purchasing supplies presents challenges to many economically disadvantaged families in the BoulderValley and St. Vrain school districts. The goal of this project is to increase community support of children in need and ensure that all students start school with the supplies they need to succeed. For the 2013-14 school year, the program will fulfill the needs of nearly 8,000 students!

 Through the generosity of the 18 Pomegranates Foundation, we are once again able to purchase close to 300 backpacks.  Our goal is to donate 400 backpacks this year and we are asking for your help in achieving our goal.
