About Supplies for Success

Supplies for Success (formerly Crayons to Calculators St. Vrain Valley) is a school supply distribution that ensures close to 5,000 students in St. Vrain Valley Schools start the school year with the supplies they need for a successful and strong academic year.

Did you know that families spend an average of $100 per year for each child’s school supplies? In St. Vrain Valley Schools 32% of students live at or near the poverty level and often go without essentials. This program ensures that students have the supplies for success.
