It’s now been well over a year since I started this project. The community support has been overwhelming, to say the least. I have invested countless volunteer hours and honestly, I have no idea where this project is headed…but for now we will just keep on doing what we are doing. My basement is overflowing with art and office supplies and we are able to give freely to any teacher or organization in need!
Supporting teachers and providing free materials is such an amazing reward.
Here is some recent feedback from folks who have recieved donations from Silver Spring Creative Reuse.
“Thank you Michelle, Our staff are breaking into the boxes today. They are excited and coming up with all sorts of new projects already. Thank you for thinking of us. What a wonderful program you are leading.” -Saarah @ Camp Magruder in Hyattsville
“Hey Michelle, Thank you so much for donating all those supplies! It will be a huge help with camp. We really appreciate you thinking of us.” -Erin Case @ Girl Scouts Council of the Nation’s Capital
“Gooood Morning Michelle, The answer to your question is YES, we can surely use any donated items. Thank you very much for all that you do for us, we appreciate it!” -Ms. S. Gibson @ Whittier Education Campus
“Thank you Michelle!” -Nicole Rovner @Pine Crest Elementary School PTA
“Hello Michelle, I want to thank you so much for your generous donation of supplies yesterday. Our children are especially excited with some of the new colors of paint and the ornaments that can be painted as well. We actually have or will find good use for everything that was donated. I know you spoke of jewelry yesterday as a part of possible donations, which will work nice as well.”
“Good Afternoon Michelle, Hope all is well. I just wanted to reach out to you again to thank you so very much for the awesome donations. They are really helping our children reach deeper into their artistic desires. I will follow up with you on some pictures as well, as our students are really enjoying the opportunity to paint more often and construct crafts. Also, our staff appreciates the office type supplies as well as the variety of new ideas they can come up with for lesson plans, due to the donations you provided. We all here at Y.O.U.R. community center send our appreciation.” Andrew Montgomery @ Y.O.U.R community center
