We'll take the old crayons your kids don't want or use anymore! Drop them off during our normal business hours.
The whole crayons will be sorted into sets for underprivileged school children, and the broken pieces will be remelted into "super crayons". Save your empty Altoid tins or tins from other mints and bring them to SCARCE. We reuse the boxes to hold whole crayons. Surprisingly, they are a perfect fit for 12 crayons!
Girl Scout Troup 50204 earned their Silver Award through a crayonathon!
"Our Girl Scout Troop 50204 of junior high girls was so excited when we started this project back in May/June when we collected crayons from area schools and libraries. We estimate that we collected just over 200 pounds of crayons. The girls then sorted out the whole, good crayons that could be given to underprivileged children. The remaining crayons were then sorted by color and peeled which was done over the summer months as this was the most time consuming aspect of the project. Finally after visiting SCARCE in September, they were able to learn the process from Sandy, and were thrilled to be finally turning the crayon pieces into SuperCrayons for handicapped children. Sandy graciously let us borrow her equipment so that we could have a “crayon-a-thon” in our leader’s garage. Between Thursday, October 6 and Sunday, October 9, 2011, our crayon factory was open for about 25 hours, and in that time, our troop of 5 girls and 2 leaders made a whopping 1,168 SuperCrayons!!!! We are so proud of all their hard work! Thank you so much!!!"
