SPECIAL THANKS TO A TERRIFIC ORGANIZATION - L.A. SHARES

One of the best ideas and most creative organizations in our city is L.A. Shares. This non-profit program is a perfect example of a win-win-win concept. Instead of paying to discard out-of-date items or things no longer needed, businesses are able to donate reusable goods or materials to dozens of Los Angeles community groups in one stop.
New or used items are re-distributed, without charge to non-profit schools or agencies throughout Los Angeles.
The Museum of the San Fernando Valley uses L.A. Shares surplus "sheet protectors", file folders, envelopes and plastic storage pouches (from Avery Corporation), to safeguard photographs, news clippings, letters and other priceless artifacts.
