Reuse Alliance member, Materials for the Arts in New York, has two events coming up in the next two weeks.

MFTA Back-To-School: Thursday, August 27

MFTA will host a special Back-to-School teachers only shopping day as part of an initiative to increase the amount of materials provided to NYC Department of Education schools. The event will help teachers prepare for the upcoming school year by providing supplies for their students, classrooms, and school projects, as well as ideas for creative lesson plans. There will be more than 100 teachers on hand for this event. Specific invitations have been sent to representatives from underperforming schools throughout NYC.
