Our supportersa few kind words

Restaurants throw away millions of crayons each year. NHSA and the Crayon Collection will help keep crayons out of landfills and put them in the hands of vulnerable children. This partnership is a great example of how Head Start works innovatively to engage with businesses in local communities.

- Yasmina Vinci, NHSA Executive Director


Kids need color. Provide them with something as simple as some crayons and some paper and you provide an outlet for them to explore their imagination which is so important because for some kids thats all they have.

- Kenny Scharf, Painter


Art in early childhood is one way of expressing ourselves where there is no right or wrong answer. It's just a pure vision coming alive. Every picture has a meaning, whether it is a scribble or a master piece.

- Rima, Head Start Teacher


Thank you Crayon Collection for making my incoming 1st graders smile! They were super excited about having their very own crayons to use. It's the little things that make the difference so thank you!!!! #‎amazingcompany #makingkidssmile
