The Crayon Initiative


Scouting Events & Activities in NOVA


By DullesMoms, May 2017

Helping to give unwanted crayons new life, the mission of the Crayon Initiative serves as a perfect volunteer opportunity for Scouts! Based out of Danville, CA, the Crayon Initiative is a non-profit organization that will melt and mold broken, sad, and lonely crayons into new ones to be given to children in hospitals — inspiring creativity, hope, and endless possibility!

Your local scout group can help by collecting old and unwanted crayons from various businesses (schools and family-friendly restaurants are a great place to start!). Then, mail the crayons directly to the Crayon Initiative to help them in their efforts. Easy and purposeful, there are plenty of ways to receive donations and make a powerful impact in the lives of others!

If you’re ready to learn more, or ready to start collecting crayons, download your free collection bin logo sticker or click here.
