Getting Schools Supplies When School Gets Out

When school is out, it is a great time to stock up on folders, spiral bound paper or ring binders, if you don't mind dumpster diving. The last day of school a lot of kids don't want the burden of things to take home and all kinds of resusables go into the trash.

Why shouldn't you or I benefit from it?

When I used to work in offices, I found lots of usable supplies which were being thrown out! Lots of paper and racks, and even old office furniture!

After KAtrina, a bunch of offices NOT affected by the storm decided to use the insurance money to redo their offices. A bunch of us divers were able to get some computers, printers and furniture for nothing.

Great idea! Maybe the teachers/custodians should be alerted too. They would be able to get supplies and save them for kids who don't have the necessities for their classes. Or have a "donation" box at the school.
