2013–2014 Group Projects

Spring 2014

Faculty/Staff Appreciation Night

On Friday, January 17, 2014, We Serve U will be hosting a supply drive to help replenish the Crayons to Classrooms store

Dayton Crayons to Classrooms (DC2C) is a free store for teachers from under-funded K-12 schools that serve children living in poverty in Ohio’s Miami Valley. In partnership with local businesses, individual donors, and community volunteers, DC2C lifts at-risk children’s level and love of learning by collecting and distributing donated supplies and surplus products for use in the classroom. Teachers from eligible schools are invited to “shop” for what they need in our retail-style free store in the Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley building in Dayton, Ohio. Educators in the Dayton area spend up to $1,000 a year of their already limited salaries to provide the necessary supplies for their students and classrooms. Please help us replenish their store on January 17th at the Faculty/Staff Basketball game.  Bring your donations to the pre-game reception in the McLin Gym.

Box top for Education Collection

Saville has an Excellent education rating, but also has a high population of needy students. Collecting and donating the Box Tops for Education allows the school to shop for needed supplies and is an easy way we can help. If you are willing to donate your Box Tops for Education to Saville Elementary, please send them to Joanie Hendricks at 216 Medical Sciences.
