Child Poverty Summit

Child Poverty Summit

The Child Poverty Collaborative formed last year and was announced in October by Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley in his State of the City address. The broad-based community effort, which is funded by private donors, aims to lift 5,000 families and 10,000 children out of poverty in five years.

Indian Hill students are showing how algebra can put crayons in the hands of area children.

High-school students in the Math Service Club worked with Crayons to Computers during the 2015-16 school year to help solve a supply-and-demand dilemma.

The organization, which is a nonprofit free store for Greater Cincinnati area teachers, was trying to come up with a way to insure that the teachers got the supplies they needed. In some instances supplies may run out because of demand, and Crayons to Computers was looking for a solution to the problem.

The Math Service Club stepped up to the plate with a solution, one that involved creating an algebraic equation.

Since 2007, Ron Wolf has spent most of his Wednesday mornings stocking the shelves at Crayons to Computers, a nonprofit free store for teachers.

He’s there once a week, 10 months out of the year, alongside his wife, Nancy, and the many friends he’s formed along the way. They help out several organizations together, and Crayons to Computers seemed like a great fit for them after Nancy retired from a 25-year teaching career.

Wolf, a retired machine-tool salesman, is known for his wit and infectious energy. Yet behind the wisecracks and high-fives, it’s clear there’s something much deeper.
