Wright Commitment: Crayons to Classrooms

As part of yesterday's student-run philanthropy/community service event, Wright Commitment, I volunteered at Crayons to Classrooms (C2C) along a few other WSU students and staff members.  Crayons to Classrooms provides school supplies for teachers of children in need.  We helped teachers bag their supplies and get them to their cars.  C2C has served about 34 schools and more than 1,000 teachers in the Dayton area.  They celebrated the landmark of distributing $1 million dollars worth of materials back in February, 2011. C2C was not the only beneficiary of the Wright Commitment event yesterday.  WSU also hosted a blood drive for the Armed Services Blood Program.  Students and staff also assisted:   YWCA Domestic Violence Shelter, Mary Queen of Peace Refugee Center (tutoring) and Five Rivers MetroParks (landscaping project). Organizer Joey Gibbons said he hopes to have a quarterly Wright Commitment event, although they may not be to the scale that yesterday's event.
