DONATING EQUIPMENT

Sure, charity is its own reward. But when your company donates office and Pentium-level computers to help education, you get an awful lot in return.

For starters, you get better schooling for the children of your community. Schools that didnít even have computers can suddenly open more kidsí eyes to greater possibilities. And with the right supplies to spur them along, you donít just get thanks; you get a future with a more educated population.

But perhaps just as important is the good youíre doing for the environment. By recycling office supplies, and donating Pentium-level computers, youíre greatly reducing the amounts that go into landfills. Which also means you save on disposal and even, in some cases, hazmat fees. Also, your corporate donation could mean an augmented tax deduction. Consult your tax advisor for details.

Call (716) 823-7248 ext. 571 and youíll be surprised how you can help yourself and your community through Computers For Children and the Materials Reuse Project.

Donating Other Items

History and MRP Goals

The Materials Reuse Project (MRP) was started 6 years ago by a Buffalo parent who was frustrated by the lack of basic supplies available to students in city classrooms. Our mission is to arrange for the direct donation of surplus materials from businesses for classroom use. To accomplish this, the MRP has forged partnerships with the City of Buffalo Public School District, encompassing 75 schools and 45,000 students.To compensate for dwindling supply budgets, The Materials Reuse Project has placed $2,000,000 of donations from more than 125 companies into the Buffalo schools. We are committed to making the public school a setting for effective education.

Our organization contacts donor companies, arranges for pickups and alerts teachers to what is available. Warehouse space is opened to teachers and non-profits so they can "shop" for the items they need.


What is Donated to MRP?

This year 100,000 folders, 525,000 3 ring binders,125 pallets of paper, pens, and pencils, were donated. Thousands of sheets of poster board, colored paper, ink, markers, drawing paper and fabric have found their way to children in the district. Vocational shop programs have been given such diverse items as wood, a radial arm saw and coping saws. Fabric for home-ec classes, and flour for the culinary program have also been donated and used. The variety of items received is almost as remarkable as the abundance of items requested.
