SOCK AND UNDERWEAR DRIVE BEING HELD AT LOCAL YMCA LOCATIONS TO BENEFIT CRAYONS TO CLASSROOMS
Dayton – 06/03/13 – Beginning Monday June 10th - Friday, June 28th, a sock & underwear donation drive will be held at the YMCA of Greater Dayton branch locations in collaboration with Crayons to Classrooms.
Crayons to Classrooms is a nonprofit teacher resource center that helps under-funded teachers from low-income schools in the Dayton region obtain free school supplies and basic clothing items at no cost to the teachers, families or schools. Many students and families in our Greater Dayton area are unable to afford basic necessities such as socks and underwear.
A large collection bin will be available at each of the ten area YMCA of Greater Dayton branch locations to gather new socks and underwear for Dayton area boys and girls from
pre-kindergarten to 4th grade. To find the Y branch closest to you, visit us at www.ymcaonline.org.
