About The Durham Teacher Warehouse Corporation:
Crayons2Calculators (C2C) serves the educational and creative needs of students in Durham Public Schools (DPS) by providing free school supplies to classroom teachers. The organization was started by Duke Public Policy students taught by Tony Brown in 2006. Duke students continue to serve on the C2C Board.
To help all Durham students have access to educational resources, C2C operates a warehouse store of new and gently used supplies. Teachers are invited to shop using points, with supply values based on supply and demand. Through its programs, C2C advocates for strong public schools, visibly supports teachers, encourages direct public engagement, and directs important resources to DPS.
