Review for Ruths Reusable Resources, Portland, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I couldn't run my class without Ruth's Reusable Resources. Several times a year I go to get pencils, rulers, scissors, crayons, paper and other supplies for my kindergarten students. It is a great resource to have. They outreach to businesses in the area to donate supplies they do not need and teachers are able to build creative lesson plans around these materials. By finding a second use for these supplies we are keeping them from the trash, which helps the environment as well as providing needed resources to schools. It is a double benefit for all of us in the community!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my classroom

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand their offerings if possible to include even more discarded supplies from businesses in the area.

Role:  Volunteer & teacher.
