Donating Teaching Materials & Supplies
Hello! I have been a public school teacher for 5 years, and I am getting rid of everything in order to move abroad and teach at an international school. I'm so overwhelmed with the amount of stuff I have! Does anyone know of a place where I can donate the good stuff? I know about Creative Reuse and those places, but I'm looking for somewhere that caters specifically to teachers- I know firsthand how expensive it can be to buy teaching supplies when you're starting out. Thanks so much for any suggestions! Too much good stuff
I don't have personal experience with SCRAP, but some years back when my office relocated, I shipped a bunch of our extra office supplies to RAFT and they were very appreciative.
Thanks so much for thinking about helping out other teachers with your extra stuff! Marie
I work in a Berkeley public elementary school and I am cleaning out our bookroom. Does anyone know of someone - institution, charter school, home school, artist, or whatever - who is interested in old school materials? There is everything from math workbooks to teachers' manuals to readers to class literature sets that need to be recycled or reused. Of course, we prefer anyone who will pick up, but any advice is appreciated. Teachers are notorious packrats and we are up to our ears! anon
Does anyone know if there is a place to donate old teaching supplies/materials? I think there used to be a place in Berkeley. Cleaning Closets
In addition to educating the children, the schools provide time for their care-givers to earn money, bring food etc. Contact me if you want me to include your donation in the next delivery and you will get a tax letter in return. 100% of your donation goes to the cause. heath
