Your donations to recycle electronics will help provide urgently needed funds to support Sandy Springs Education Force’s COVID-19 Response. Students missed several months of personal interaction and assistance due to the pandemic, and will start the school year via digital learning. SSEF is coordinating with our school leaders to help fill in any gaps and support students moving forward. 

 

ELECTRONICS

Electronics (non-working or working will be wiped clean) will go to eWaste ePlanet for a minimum donation of $15 per car to SSEF. Please bring exact change, check or pay online via the orange button via this link on our Donate page and bring your donation receipt.

eWaste ePlanet will require additional, per pound charges to recycle some items. (See below for details.)

CHILDREN’S BOOK & SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE 

Please bring new and gently used children’s books and/or new school supplies to donate. We will provide the school supplies to The Teachers’ Supply Closet to distribute to schools and classrooms as needed. Supplies needed include: face masks, hand sanitizer, binders, book bags, calculators, pencils, glue sticks and more. Click here for a complete list of requested supplies.

We will donate the books directly to students to help them create their own personal libraries to keep at home via our Mini Libraries program.
