Hi, this was my first visit to 3R's. I was tickled with the generosity of the companies that donate to Ruth's!
The women that were working on the day I was there were very friendly and helpful.

The Great!

I collected a modest supply of needed goods and took home a mental image of all of the items I could use to do sensory projects with the men and women I work with with disabilities. My next trip will be to gather sensory supplies for activity boxes.

Hello, I have known Ruth since we we're in Jr. High. She is a SHINING example of a person who had a vision and followed it through some challenging times, until it germinated into a very relevant organization. She began with no money; just a sincere hope to improve her community. I am totally impressed with what Ruth and her staff have accomplished in a decade. She has created a novel orginization where everyone wins; the students, the teachers, and the businesses that donate their extra supplies.

Each year we head to Ruth's to fill in the gaps that our budget process is not able to cover and each year I am amazed at the depth and breadth of Ruth's warehouse. We are able to obtain the smallest items to the largest (last year the secretary got a wrap around desk unit ). Ruth's is an outstanding "green" operation with wonderful volunteers and a well run organization. She provides many items for our school that we would otherwise go without. In these tough budget times, we are so grateful.

I would ask that they send out more bulletins when they get a large shipment in during the school year so we can coordinate a truck to bring big items back

Met Ruth at the first national Reuse Conference (ReuseConex) held in Raleigh, NC this past October. Of all the reuse organizations, I was particularly impressed with Ruth and her organization. The sheer SCALE of what she was doing - the size of her building and all the resources and more importantly, all the materials that were potentially diverted from landfills. Not to mention the great service to teachers and educators for an affordable option for expensive materials. What a concept - should be copied and "franchised" across the country. Can't say enough what an impression this visionary woman and her organization had on me - profound.

The Great!

Ruth's is an invaluable part of the teaching community. I have been visiting Ruth's for close to 10 years. Without materials that she offers I would not be able to supply my classroom with the necessary materials needed due to budget shortfalls and the recession. I count on Ruth's and usually make at least 1 trip per month. Ruth's is number 1.

The Great!

Ruth's takes many resources which may be discarded and gives them a second chance in schools. Teachers love Ruth's.

I really have no suggestions.
