The Healing Project Wishs to Thank Materials for the Arts

The Healing Project wishes to acknowledge the generous support of Materials for the Arts for our after-school education programs, Our Stories and Fruity Tales. It will greatly reduce spending on materials for our classes and therefore permit us to reach more students.

Materials for the Arts should be replicated around the country as unwanted goods are used to promote education while reducing the load on our environment.

Since 1978, Materials for the Arts has provided thousands of New York City's arts and cultural organizations, public schools and community arts programs with the supplies they need to run and expand their programs. Materials are gathered from companies and individuals that no longer need them and redistributed to the artists and educators that do. In the process, hundreds of tons are removed from the waste stream every year and kept out of landfills, helping to sustain our environment and promote reuse and waste reduction. MFTA helps artists realize their visions, provides students with a richer educational experience and furnishes businesses and individuals with a simple and efficient way to enhance the cultural life of their city.

The success of MFTA and its programming would not be possible without the participation of material donors throughout the metropolitan area. If you are interested in donating your unwanted reusable items to MFTA please visit our Donor page or call 718.729.3001 ext. 207.

Materials for the Arts is a unit of The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
