Very good craft donation suggestions!!! I have been the recipient of many thoughtful but not necessarily on point batches of craft supplies and I definitely agree—think before you give. In Phoenix (Tempe, technically) we have the Art Resource Center, which is a nonprofit that provides art and craft supplies to teachers, nonprofits, etc. They’ve got an AMAZING selection of materials.
Thanks for mentioning the Art Resource Center–it sounds great! 🙂
