Crayons to Computers


Established 1997

Mission At Crayons to Computers we believe that every child deserves the quantity and quality of supplies necessary to succeed in school. Our mission is “to serve the educational and imaginative needs of children in the Greater Cincinnati area by providing a unique means to transfer donated, value purchased, and created product from businesses and individuals free to teachers for use in their classrooms and schools.”


Serving Our Community Crayons to Computers partners with more than 600 schools to serve 12,000+ teachers and 150,000+ students, preschool through grade 12, in 16 counties throughout Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeast Indiana. Through our Teacher Free Store and Mobile Outreach Programs, we aim to bridge the gap for families and schools who do not have the financial ability to provide school supplies to students. Families unable to provide basic food and shelter inevitably struggle to secure the necessary supplies needed for their children to succeed in school. We offer a variety of materials, at no charge, that support learning, including basic supplies such as books, crayons, paper, scissors, and pencils as well as enrichment and incentive items that teachers can use to motivate and inspire student engagement.
