My principal included a call for makerspace donations in his monthly
newsletter. Although I did not get many responses, one family donated
probably $1000 worth of "old" LEGOs. Definitely worth your while to try.

Hi all,

I was was given a space to try and get a makerspace up and running in my
library for the next school year.  I am super excited, however the question
has come about asking for donations from parents. (Things like, paper towel
rolls, markers, pencils, straws, etc - nothing “tech-y”).

Can any of you share is you have asked for donations from parents for a
makerspace?  We are a middle-upper class school district.  If any of you
out there are from a similar demographic, and would share if a donation
letter has been successful or well-recieved, that would help me make a case
to the administration.

Thanks for your help,
