On February 24, 2013, Austin Creative Reuse hosted a materials drive for Austin educators, including school teachers (public, private, charter), after school teachers, daycare providers, scout troop leaders and more. We collected over 7,400lbs of materials from the community and area businesses and invited educators to receive the materials to use for projects in their classrooms and programs. In one day, we supported over 3,200 kids with free materials.
What: Austin Creative Reuse is hosting a materials drive for Austin educators: school teachers (public, private, charter), after school teachers, day care providers, etc. will be welcome to receive materials for use in their classrooms and programs.
