Default Where to donate craft stuff?

I have some fabric, paints, clear craft ornaments, and other craft stuff I just want GONE. Any idea where to take the stuff?

Do you have a nursing home or senior center nearby? Our local nursing homes gladly accept craft items (as well as magazines, clothing, Christmas decorations, and lots of other stuff too).

Local school art department. Some of the advanced students do very individualized work and are always looking for unique supplies.

Or try Freecycle.org - I'm sure there is someone who will take it!

Local libraries would gladly take it! They love fresh stuff for story hour and special children's programs!

I donate my extra craft supplies to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation Schools. The children live in poverty conditions and really appreciate all the new supplies that are donated.

Here's a link with info:

Pine Ridge

(The Schools are listed on the right side of the screen.)

If you're still looking for a place to donate, might I suggest your local woman's shelter? They are always looking for craft items that the women and children can work together with.

Merry Christmas
