Individual Volunteering is perfect for those looking to give back to our greater community

Volunteer for a teacher (vfat)
Here at Crayons to Computers, we understand you can’t be in two places at once! That’s why we created our Volunteer for a Teacher (VFAT) program. The VFAT program allows an individual to donate some of their time as a volunteer in order to earn a shopping trip on a teacher’s behalf!
PLEASE NOTE! An individual volunteering for a teacher may only volunteer one time per academic year for said teacher.
However, you may volunteer for multiple different teachers within that academic year. Each teacher will only receive one shopping certificate from the VFAT program per academic year.
Individual Volunteer opportunities include (but are not limited to)
High School Helper
Earn your community service hours by helping teachers box items, load cars, and retrieve shopping carts from the parking lot! Your help is much appreciated and an integral component to Crayons to Computers’ success!
Keep Our Kids Warm
Again, another annual event in which we encourage participants to knit, crochet, or collect yarn in an effort to provide hats, gloves, and scarves to students in need! The hours and location are flexible for this event.
Help us with the behind the scenes work! We are eager to find volunteers to assist with basic data entry, greeting visitors, and answering phones! Hours are flexible
Back To School
An annual, community wide back to school supply drive and fundraiser in which Crayons to Computers focuses on engaging local companies and organizations to donate new school supplies and contribute funds to our organization!
Help while teachers shop in the free store; assist with the check in and check out processes, as well as stock and organize shelves.
Available Monday-Thursday with flexible times between 3:00 – 7:00 PM
Host a supply drive at your school, business, or place of worship. Items we need the most include: mittens, gloves, yarn, books, and any basic school supplies such as writing utensils, notebooks, and paper.
