Duke Regional Hospital just wrapped another successful school supplies drive, collecting 22 fully packed bins for Crayons2Calculators. Duke Regional employees donated clipboards, composition books, copy paper, crayons, erasers, glue sticks, highlighters, markers, pencils, spiral notebooks and more to help local children get the new school year off to a great start. This is one of several drives Duke Regional has held for Crayons2Calculators. Employees most recently collected 13 bins during a drive in December.
Crayons2Calculators provides free school supplies to teachers in the Durham Public School system. Teachers from the highest poverty schools are invited to the warehouse for supplies once a month, while teachers from other schools are invited once per year to choose supplies they need for their classroom.
