Spare Parts

San Antonio has an innovative nonprofit organization called Spare Parts. The organization’s mission is to “connect with various agencies/businesses & provide a steady supply of materials (otherwise thrown away) for the artistic community & educators.” Here’s a list of the types of materials they collected last year:  http://sparepartstudio.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/spare-parts-materials-donation-guide-2013.pdf

Spare Parts usually collects materials in the summer and then teachers get the materials for use in their classrooms during the school year. Spare Parts

Occasionally, Spare Parts will have additional collections or will share information about other groups that are gathering materials. You can subscribe to their e-newsletter at their website.
