Crayons 2 Calculators

This organization started through a partnership between Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill students.  A few times a year, Crayons 2 Calculators operates a store for teachers to pick out various school supplies – for free.  Teachers can “spend” a certain amount of money on supplies that they otherwise would either pay for personally or have to teach without.
