    Re: Wax Crayon Donation Request

    Success has nothing to do with what you gain in life or what you accomplish for yourself; it’s what you do for others. – Danny Thomas

    Share the Warmth celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. This milestone will be celebrated throughout the year as we continue to offer the essential programs that support our members.

    The Back-to-School program distributes school supplies to 5,000 students in Montreal schools. Last year, 43 schools asked for our help for their underprivileged students. We distributed over 60,000 items to these students.

    This coming year, we also hope to offer this program as well as a shopping coop of school supplies that would allow local low-income families to provide for their children. In this way, we hope to foster independence in these families.

    We hope to get as many of the necessary supplies donated as possible and donations in kind as well as financial donations that allow us to buy necessary supplies are greatly appreciated. We hope you will be able to help us this year as we try to support more families with these two programs.

    Together, we truly are making a difference for children who need our help.

    I was trying to find out if the classroom ready Prang tempera paints have any egg in them. I have a student with an egg contact allergy and have been unable to find that information anywhere.
    Can you please help me?

    Thank you!

    Hi Rachelle- I have looked through you website for a number to call but am unable to find one. I am helping some friends in Mandeville, LA source school supplies for the schools that flooded this month. I moved to LA from FL and had never heard of your pencil brand until every single parent, teacher and administration sang your praises to me! I would love to talk with someone with your company about how we can help the children, teachers and staff rebuild their school supplies for this school year since they were all lost in the floods. I hope to hear from you or a representative of your amazing company soon!

      Thanks for reaching out–Dixon is a national pencil and fine art sponsor for the Kids In Need Foundation. They provide school supplies to those in need–I would suggest trying to reach out to them and a resource center nearby. Their site is

    Im doing a school project that requires I choose an object and find out how every part of that object is made (from where the raw materials come from, all the way to who manufactures it). My group choose a pencil. We chose your company because of its popularity. We are looking for some to help us investigate this process.

    I’m looking for a phone number for customer service and can’t seem to find it on the Prang website. Can you give me the number? I purchased a 36 pack of watercolors for my kindergarten….12 regular, 12 glitter, 12 metallic and they are terrible! I’ve never had a problem before but this box is sticky and drippy and unusable! I spent most of my budget money on this and need to get a new box! Please help!

    I am not sure how to contact someone from the company so…I am a teacher and have always loved your pencils. However, this year I must have purchased a defective batch! Nearly every eraser on the pencils my students use has broken off. This is very frustrating as kids erase A LOT! As you know, Ticonderoga pencils are not inexpensive but I have always believed the extra money was worth it. I am beginning to second-guess my loyalty as nearly 6 boxes of pencils now have no erasers. At first I thought my students were intentionally tearing off the erasers – until I was using one and as I was erasing something the eraser just came off. Now, I am left with several dozen pencils with no erasers. What should I do to get these replaced? Thank you for any help you can provide.

    Good afternoon!

    I was looking for a media or PR contact to discuss an opportunity for Dixon Ticonderoga to be featured in the manufacturing section of the upcoming issue of STEM Jobs magazine. The magazine reaches about 20,000 middle and high school students and is designed to help teachers connect what is happening in their classrooms to careers.

    This upcoming issue will feature author and actress Mayim Bialik from “The Big Bang Theory” on the cover and an interview with her in a featured article.

    Thank you so much for any help you can provide in connecting me to the right person! Have a lovely day!

    Hi, Rachel!

    I just sent you an email. Please let me know if you didn’t receive it for some reason. Our content deadline was actually yesterday, but I’m willing to extend it a few days if Dixon is interested in participating.

    I look forward to hearing from you!

    I have a question. I don’t see anywhere on your home page to contact you, so I am using this format. I have bought my DT pencils for YEARS at costco in bulk. This year, the pencils are breaking every five minutes. It’s been super frustrating. I am a high school physics teacher in Orlando. Have they changed the wood they are making the pencils with? I surely can’t be the only person noticing this? Literally my pencil will break, then break two seconds later, then rebreak….. It’s driving me crazy. I don’t like mechanical pencils. Just wondering. I don’t really want to switch to pen….
