CRAYONS FOR CANCER

Your old broken crayons can be re-purposed to help others!  Just drop them off at the library and they’ll be given to Crayons for Cancer, a non-profit organization which benefits children with cancer.  They are melted and formed into decorative art.  Please don’t throw, just pass on to help.  For more information, go to:  www.crayonsforcancer.org
