Here in Portland there's something called Schoolhouse Supply where teacher's can go get free supplies donated by businesses, etc. In fact this week is our school's turn to to "shop". You never know what will be there, but it's always worth the trip. There's an article about them you can pull up on the web:

Subject: Reuse Center?
Our community arts group is considering starting a "reuse center for arts and education" where overstock, discarded, recycled art and education supplies can be gathered and organized then re-distributed to educational and non-profit programs in the community.
Do you have a similar program in your community? We would like to gather as much information as possible, and perhaps even visit a couple programs to determine if this is feasible for us. Our community is not high industrial and more tourism-based, however we are the largest town between Denver and Salt Lake, so we'd likely have support from businesses and small manufacturers in the region.
You can respond "off-list" if you'd wish, to my husband: Dennis Brady (firstname.lastname@example.org)
