I really quickly wanted to forward on this request from my best friend, Angie, who is a teacher and is looking for some scrappy donations for her school. I have pasted the details below...if you have some older supplies you are looking to part with, I hope you will consider this as an option.
Thank you and happy Saturday!
I work at a public high school in Denver with a science and technology focus. We are always looking for ways to bring arts and creativity to our students, and this year I get to teach a scrapbooking class. My goal is to teach a new generation about scrapbooking. In the class we'll be making scrapbook pages, mini-albums, and cards. Students will learn layout design, stamping techniques, and how to mix and match patterns and colors. Many of our students come from low-income families and cannot afford to buy supplies themselves. My school has given me a very small budget so that I can get started with scissors, a few paper trimmers, and some adhesive, but I need to collect the rest of the supplies. If you have any old paper, cardstock, stickers, letters, ink, embellishments, tools, or mini-albums that you don't use anymore and would be willing to donate, my students and I would appreciate it so much. Partially-used sticker sheets, paper pads, and embellishments are great. We'll put it all into a class supply bin and share.
Please mail donations to:
DSST Stapleton High School
Attn: Angie Turek

Thank you very much for your help! Please include a return address so that students can send you a thank you card. If you have questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
