Do you have extra, unwanted crayons? The Danville Youth Council encourages you to donate them for a program to help make young people at hospitals across the U.S. very happy.
The DYC is partnering with the Crayon Initiative to host a Town-wide crayon drive. From November 5-15, 2018, community members can drop off their crayons at participating locations: Danville Community Center, Danville Library, Creekside Elementary School, Greenbrook Elementary School, Monte Vista High School, Sycamore Valley Elementary School, and Tassajara Hills Elementary School.
Upon collection, members from the Danville Youth Council will sort the crayons by color and then they will be donated to the Crayon Initiative. The Crayon Initiative is a non-profit organization that collects used crayons. They melt the old crayons down to create new ones, which are sent across the country to a multitude of hospitals for the enjoyment of the children that are admitted.
Any type or color of crayon will be accepted. For more information, call the Danville Community Center at 925-314-3400.
