Ever wonder what to do with old, gross crayons? Instead of throwing them in the landfill, we will be re-purposing them into new multi-colored ones, that are formed into fun shapes! These will be put into sandwich bags to be distributed at local hospitals, shelters, and care homes. Volunteers will be needed for various tasks:

- Prepping crayons to be melted
- Adhering positive message stickers to bags
- Filling bags with pre-made crayons

Thanks for reading and participating in Love SLO 2019!


When you sign up for the project above you get a free Love SLO t-shirt. The shirt is available to be picked up at any time from J. Carroll (113 Cross St., San Luis Obispo, CA 93401 / 595-1000). Go into the main lobby, tell them you signed up for Love SLO, and they'll give you your shirt. Easy as that! Otherwise we'll have your shirt at the Mission Plaza the morning of the event. 

Love SLO (March 16th) begins at 8:00am in the Mission Plaza. Festivities (free food, fun, etc.) begin at 8:00am and the Rally will begin around 8:30am. You will meet here before going to your project location. When you arrive, you'll want to find your project sign and meet your project leader. After the Rally, you will meet at your project sign and hear important instructions from your project leader before going to your project location.

Thank You, This Project is Full
