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.
