Fill the Bus 2016


It’s that time of year again. We’re in the middle of summer but teachers all over Durham are planning classroom activities and hoping that not too much has to come out of their own pockets to make sure all their students have the supplies they need to be successful in school.

The big day is Saturday, August 20 at the same location at South Square between Sam’s Club and Office Depot. Use the Sign-up Genius link to sign up to volunteer on the big day. The link will be in the side-bar on the right until the event or they have enough volunteers. Wear your sunscreen and come on out and help.

The organization sponsoring this effort, Crayons2Calculators is planning their biggest drive yet. The goal for 2016 is $135,000 worth of school supplies. You can help by hosting a collection bin at your business, association or neighborhood. The C2C website is HERE.

Another closely related event is the New Teacher Giveaway the following weekend on August 27 at the C2C warehouse on Holloway Street. This means they are giving new teachers first dibs on the supplies gathered, not giving away a new teacher. Welcome to your new world! Click HERE to sign up.

To print copies of the C2C flyer pictured above to distribute to co-worker, friends, neighbors and strangers. click HERE.  It’s in pdf format that you can also forward by email.  Something else…paste the link to this post on Facebook. Let’s blow the doors off that bus!

The pictures are from last year’s Fill the Bus event.
