Ruth's Reusable Resources is an absolute GODSEND to teachers in the state of Maine. Most people know that teachers do spend their own money on their classrooms, but most don't realize the hundreds and hundreds of dollars that we spend each year on our kids. It comes down to this: if we need it, and the district doesn't provide it, we have to buy it--or go without. If you come from a two-teacher family, like me, that can really add up every year. That's where Ruth comes in. She provides, at no cost to teachers, the resources we need for class. Whether it's a new stapler, reams of paper, binders, in-baskets, books, paper clips, pens, pencils, and everything else you can possibly imagine, she provides it. The businesses who support her give her their excess or their outdated items, all of which would otherwise end up in a landfill. I estimate that so far this year, Ruth's has saved my family personally approximately $250 for items such as those I mentioned above, and many others--including some brand-new new safety goggles for my science class. RUTH, we love you and thank you for your support of education. We are so blessed to have you in the state of Maine! :)
