Profile:

  • The Materials Reuse Project (MRP) was started by a Buffalo parent who was frustrated by the lack of basic supplies available to students in city classrooms. Our mission is to arrange for the direct donation of surplus materials from businesses for classroom use. To accomplish this, the MRP has forged partnerships with the City of Buffalo Public School District, encompassing 75 schools and 45,000 students. To compensate for dwindling supply budgets, The Materials Reuse Project has placed $2,000,000 of donations from more than 125 companies into the Buffalo schools. We are committed to making the public school a setting for effective education.
