BINDERS

For the past five years, Moseley Architects has been collecting used binders and other supplies that could be used by teachers such as carpet samples, and donating them to Chesterfield County Public Schools’ Crayons to Computers store. Binders in particular are in high demand by teachers, and are among the more expensive school supply items.  The Crayons to Computers program collects community donations and makes them available to teachers at a storefront location where they can “shop” for free items for their classrooms.  Moseley Architects has donated hundreds of binders and other items over the years.
