The Crayon Initiative adds color to lives of children in hospitals

Community

The Crayon Initiative gives old crayons a new life while adding a little color to the lives of kids in hospitals. 

The initiative collects unwanted crayons from schools, restaurants, and homes. Then, they sort them by color and melt them down, forming them into new crayons to be donated to children’s hospitals. 

Employees from CSAA Insurance Group worked on the project Tuesday. 

To date, the Crayon Initiative has collected more than 20 million crayons. They’ve donated more than 226,000 new packs of crayons to children in hospitals around the country.
