LA Shares is a non-profit materials reuse program which takes donations of reusable goods and materials (both new and used) and redistributes these items free of charge to non-profits and schools throughout Los Angeles County. This is accomplished by using their interactive website where interested schools and non-profits create an online profile of their organization, including a “Wish List” and “Top 20 List” of needed items. This profile is then entered into their unique, relational database, which proactively identifies each organization’s needs and continuously seeks to match those needs with the donated items on record. When a need is matched, the recipient is notified, via e-mail, to come to one of our two area warehouses to retrieve their items or instructed to go directly to the donor for pick-up. Either way, this state-of-the-art system is designed to help schools and non-profits obtain needed items quickly.
