We link schools and businesses by recycling surplus inventory into free supplies for teachers and classrooms.
Companies to Classrooms DULUTH: Simple Concept, Profound Results!
We are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting teachers and their classrooms. C2C Duluth serves local school districts by distributing excess goods and supplies from businesses to classrooms at no cost to the students or the schools.
How it works: Local businesses and individuals donate excess supplies and inventories. Examples of donated materials include office supplies, binders, folders, books, pens/pencils, paper clips, tape dispensers, staplers, promotional items/samples, bulk paper, chairs, tables, file cabinets and more. All donations are warehoused and merchandised in our “store." C2C is open three afternoons each week, giving teachers and school staff an opportunity to pick up supplies for their classrooms and students, at no cost to them or the school. We currently welcome educators in the following districts: Alborn, Barnum, Carlton, Cloquet, Duluth, Esko, Fond du Lac, Grand Portage, Hermantown, Maple, Northwestern Wisconsin, Proctor, Solon Springs, Superior, Two Harbors and Wrenshall. This includes public and private schools, pre-schools, and home-school educators. We also invite those who work in educational programs affiliated with the schools to come and “shop” as well.
How you can help:
- Support C2C Duluth with financial contributions. Your tax-deductible donation will enable this organization to redistribute supplies headed for the landfill into classrooms, strengthening the ties between education and business. Re-use, re-purpose, recycle. Simple! Your support will be much appreciated, especially by those who benefit the most…the students!
- Donate your excess goods and supplies…teachers are creative, so a wide variety of items and materials can be used by students for hands-on learning experiences in the classroom.
- Volunteer your time and talents to help operate the “free store.”
