Reuse Makes Sense/2012 Spring Donation Drive

When you give an item to Building Blocks you produce three beneficial deeds.  First, a child’s education is helped, because our sales benefit the Learning Skills Center.  LSC is a tutoring school where children’s fees are based on family income.  These fees only cover about 30% of LSC’s expenses.  Secondly, someone is provided materials and goods they need at 40-80% off retail price.  And third, these items donated are kept out of the landfill. 

Help us help others by donating to Building Blocks.  We accept any reusable building and home supplies. We’re at 3725 Cliff Gookin Blvd. in the warehouse of Learning Skills Center. Your tax-deductible donations are accepted Mon.-Sat. 9am-4pm.

Trash to Treasure with Old Drawers

old drawersOld drawers can be reused in many ways.  Here are some great websites and other  ideas.  Casters can be mounted onto drawers for plant caddies, put under bed for storage, used in the garage for tools, etc.  My favorites are these shelves and storage units made from drawers. Dog beds can also start with a drawer. Please share your ideas… we have lots of vintage drawers.old drawersold drawerold drawer
