On Thursday, October 14, 2010 Crayons to Calculators proudly hosted their Corporate Challenge Celebration at Western Disposal Services’ corporate headquarters in Boulder, Colorado.  On hand were many of the 2010 Corporate Challenge participants as well as Crayons to Calculators Collaborative Partners and Corporate Sponsors.

Over 7,200 backpacks filled with basic school supplies were distributed to students throughout the Boulder Valley and St. Vrain Valley School Districts just before the start of the current academic school year.
