What a success!
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 able to come and receive materials to use for projects in their classrooms and programs. See the materials we’re collecting below!
When: Sunday, February 24, 2013 from 10-4pm
Who: Anyone who has a positive impact on kids in our community is invited to the event.
Please only donate materials from the list below. This is a one day event and we will not be able to store left overs. We are strategically asking for the materials teachers identified as their top needs in an Austin Creative Reuse survey of Austin area educators in Fall 2012.
We will be accepting donations February 14-17th , 8am-8pm.
Please note that this is a private residence. We will have volunteers available on February 17th from 10am-4pm if you need assistance unloading materials. Otherwise, leave your donation on the front porch and fill out our sign in sheet, so we can calculate how many people donated during our drive.
Please help us collect the following materials to have available for educators at a temporary reuse event on February 24, 2013. Thank you so much for your support to Austin educators and Austin Creative Reuse!
We need volunteers to run a successful event during donation collection times, the actual event, and clean up.
