This Saturday, August 11, 700 plus teachers and 1 million crayons will come together for the Crayon Collection’s One Million Crayon Drive at Westfield Culver City so that local teachers can get what they need for the school year.
The LA-based organization, CRAYON COLLECTION, is a nonprofit that supports teachers, the environment, and arts education by donating gently-used crayons to schools across the country. The average teacher spends $900 out of their own pocket each school year so their students can have the supplies they need. Studies have proven that children with arts education perform better in all subjects, including math, reading and writing.
The drive is set to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for the most crayons donated to charity in eight hours.
Crayon Collection, the nonprofit that supports teachers, the environment, and arts education by donating gently-used crayons, will donate one million crayons at its back-to-school Million Crayon Drive in Culver City on Saturday, August 11.
This family-friendly event will have free learning opportunities for the whole community, including
-hands-on workshops where kids can work with animators from Nickelodeon to create crayon art projects,
-participate in the Crayon Collection Color Kindness Program where students will sort, re-pack, & include their own handwritten note of positivity to be delivered to students receiving the crayons and more.

About Crayon Collection
The Crayon Collection model is simple but its impact is extraordinary: by collecting gently used crayons from restaurants and hotels that distribute free crayons to children when they dine, in addition to community-based collection efforts, the organization intervenes in a cycle of waste that has existed for decades. It saves an extraordinary tool of expression, curiosity and learning – the crayon – and redistributes them to local schools in need across the country. The programming ensures millions of crayons are saved from landfills each year and are instead repurposed for teachers and students, along with best in class resources to support art education. And at the heart of its work is a desire to create a global movement for change, a new “eco-normal” consciousness that is mindful of the environment and nearby communities in need. Through the simple act of saving a crayon, it seeks to reignite art programs in American schools, engage a national audience to be stewards of their community and the environment, and create a new sustainability model.
This sounds like a fun event (and great for families) to attend! If you want to donate crayons (new or gently used), they would be accepted by Crayon Connection at that event.
