3R's Story

   3R’s is in its 26th year of service to schools and non-profits. Each day, throughout the school year, children in Maine attend school without needed pencils, paper, and other basic supplies.  At the same time, businesses in Maine dispose of these same basic items.  3R’s bridges the gap between business and education by transferring those unwanted supplies to children and their teachers.  It is working! Since 1994, 3R’s has given away more than $84 million worth of surplus furniture, paper, books, office supplies and computers to schools and non-profits.

   In the end, it’s good for kids, education, the environment, and businesses.
