Mission Moment: Crayons 2 Computers
2013 Grant Recipient, Crayons to Computers (C2C),   took school supplies to a whole new place through Impact 100 funds: mobile delivery.  Through the Mobile Outreach Program, C2C surpassed their strategic goals to Impact 100.   Your support of Impact 100 directly supports transformational nonprofit initiatives like this one!

Initial Impact 100 Grant Goal C2C Successes Since Launching
Grow to 43 participating schools
As of November 2016, the MOP was serving 72 schools
Increase teacher participation to 75%
Since receiving funds, 91% of the teachers eligible accessed the program
Double Saturday shopping
Free Store is now open twice a month and continues to be one of the busiest shopping days of the week!

20% of the students served overall through C2C between 2014-16 were through the Mobile Outreach Program.   By Fiscal Year 2018, there are plans to further expand this program with the addition of a second MOP vehicle and staff person to manage the program!

"The success of the MOP has far surpassed our initial expectations. After launching in September 2014, the MOP hosted 6,028 teacher visits (from 2,100 eligible teachers), providing 48,000 students (between 2014-16) with $1.4 million worth of school supplies they needed the most."
