Review for Ruths Reusable Resources, Portland, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Each year I budget for items to supply my small school nurse office. In recent years the schools budget is frozen mid year. Thanks to Ruths, I have been able to obtain needed items to keep my busy "clinic" running without missing a beat. Ruths appeals to the Yankee in me as well, and is a great example of practicing what we teach in school. Our students are very observant and are learning what they live, when they see a delighted teacher or their school nurse return with useful items for the classroom.

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

I have obtained supplies that I have been able to use in care and treatment of my students. It was a pleasant surprise to find items related to healthcare at Ruths.

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

Increase hours or offer branch RUTH's stores around the state.

Accepting items from big companies and making the items available to education. Seems so logical, but no one has done it as well as Ruth!
