My room is filled with furniture, equipment, and materials from Ruth's. In these hard economic times, we are fortunate to have Ruths to supply us with the materials we need to teach! Last year, I was overwhelmed with my math materials everywhere. At Ruth's I found these wonderful drawers to organize my math! Other teachers were so impressed, they went in the next weekend to get some for their classroom.
Students enjoy using the envelopes to write letters to each other. Every year, I make a special trip to load up on recycled materials so students in my Kindergarten class can design and make a vehicle. I am amazed at what they make with junk art! I love Ruths!!!

Everywhere you look in my classroom are materials from Ruth's. I have bookcases, books for my classroom library, art supplies, pencils, tape, erasers, report covers for poetry books, binders for Reader's Workshop, paper for photocopying, low stools to sit on at the circle and many other wonderful materials. The materials have provided great organization in my classroom and an an opportunity to provide students with materials for enrichment activities. I feel so fortunate to have Ruth's as a resource for my school.

Ruth's is a wonderful resource for classroom teachers. I have built my classroom library with good used quality books from Ruth's. Every visit there is an opportunity to get pencils, notebooks, items for projects, poster board, too many things to name. Ruth's is great.

Ruth's Recyclable's is an amazing place. Take last Saturday, I went to get just a few items my class is short on, like pencils and 3 hole punch paper. But by the time I left I found so many other things, from a combination lock to a set of easy to read books for my students. It serves such a valuable purpose to teachers and our students. From glue to paper, from odd art stuff to pencil lead, from a box of tissues to calculators, some weeks you just don't know what you will find but it is always practical and useful. Join me in supporting Ruth's!!!

Ruth's is not only a great place for teachers to get needed supplies. It also gives companies a place to donate items that they no longer need. In the past, many of these organizations put these items into a dumpster. Now, they can help teachers, students, and the environment by recycling them at Ruth's.

Ruth's is a needed resource for schools and teachers. As budgets decline, obtaining materials at Ruth's becomes even more valuable to supplement classroom needs . The customer service and organized layout make "shopping" at Ruth's a pleasure---even more so because there is always an unexpected surprise item. Additionally, RUth's allows for the throw-outs at one workplace become treasures at another.

Ruth's Reusable Resources has been a wonderful place for teachers to find materials for immediate use in the classroom. Ruth's finds furniture as well. I am currently using bookcases, a teacher desk, a teacher chair and file cabinet which I obtained at Ruth's. I find birthday banners (little plastic flags) for students, paper, pens, pencils, erasers, markers, books, art supplies and much more at Ruth's to use in the classroom. Since our schools are purchasing very little, Ruth's supports the classroom in many areas.

make no changes as I prefer not to look a gift horse in the mouth. Ruth is kind, caring, benevolent, helpful and providing a service to all teachers in my area of Maine.

Ruth's is an amazing resource. I have been able to fill in gaps in my supplies when my responsibilities at work have changed and I did not have the items I needed and there was no additional funding to purchase supplies. I rely on Ruth's for a wide variety of materials and am always thrilled to find what I need. The staff are also exceptionally helpful.

I am sure that Ruth's could use as much support as possible, especially in these economic times where school budgets are being cut.
