ANN ARBOR, MI — An Ann Arbor nonprofit is distributing free school supplies to teachers in August.
SCRAP Creative Reuse, 4567 Washtenaw Ave., will host Teacher Appreciation Days from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on August 13 and 14, which will include a free filler table for teachers.
SCRAP was founded by a group of teachers who wanted to get as many uses as possible from the remaining project materials. In honor of educators, the organization wants to give back.
Supplies offered will include paper, pens, crayons, crayons, markers, and various craft and classroom supplies. The offer is open to any teacher presenting their teacher ID card or tax-exempt documents.
Educators who deposit their tax-exempt documents with SCRAP are entered into a raffle to win one of two SCRAP gift certificates.
“We have a long history of supporting our local educators at SCRAP,” said director Claire Tyra. “We want to continue to be a resource for creativity and reuse for local educators. We value our teachers and our schools so much and we know how difficult this past year has been. We want to make sure we can offer some support.
