A significant measure of need put forth by educational organizations is the number of students that qualify to receive free and reduced lunches. In Durham Public Schools nearly 52% of students are eligible for that federal program.
Additionally, 31 schools in Durham are Title I schools meaning that majority of the student population has been identified as economically disadvantaged.
Together, we can help ensure all students have the supplies they need to be academically successful. Every year Crayons2Calculators distributes more than $100,000 of school supplies to local teachers. We proudly serve every school in Durham County providing classroom essentials ranging from pencils to notebooks, art supplies, paper and more.
