Gently Used School Supplies

     The end of the school year means cleaning out.  It is time to clean out desks and drawers and cupboards and shelves.  Every year I end up with piles of school supplies that have been used to varying degrees.  Most years I end up just throwing them away or tossing them in the recycling bin if possible.  This year I was happy to have another option.

     Today's act of kindness was dropping my gently used school supplies in a donation box.  Another teacher at my school took on the task of collecting these supplies for others to use throughout the summer and next year.  I feel great knowing that those in need will benefit from this act of kindness.  Here's hoping that they enjoy their mostly new pens and pencils and notebooks as much as I have.
