Recycle & Organize & Help Schools & Students

This Sparked Me!

Donate old games (resource rooms for special ed), arts & crafts (crayons, construction paper, jars washed and cleaned, yarn, and such), old magazines and newspapers for Art classes at Schools. Donate sewing machines, pasta makers, etc to Home Ec ( to teach kids how to sew and cook). Donate instruments to band/orchestra for kids who can't afford to buy but want to learn.

With Schools getting cut backs, this is a great way to declutter your home and help out your schools and students. Collect from neighborhood drives to help schools and link a community.

    Great Idea! But in our area, the schools have gotten pretty picky about what they'll take. Like Goodwill, they've been given too many things that they can't use and then it becomes their responsibility to get rid of them. Unless you know a specific teacher/classroom that wants certain items, you might want to call the school first.

    I don't like this idea, I LOVE it! Great idea! emoticon
