Crayons to Classrooms is a charitable program that helps teachers give children living in poverty what they need to get the most out of their education. NS Cares has volunteered on multiple occasions, and each time has been very rewarding. We have made journals out of dot matrix paper, created decorations for classrooms, and organized their donated supplies. While volunteering, we spoke with a teacher that was volunteering with us and she was able to give us a real understanding of what it’s like to work in a school with more than 80% of its students living in poverty. We’re grateful to be able to contribute to a cause, like Crayons to Classrooms, and help schools in our own backyard.
