An organization in the Keys that enables high school students with disabilities to learn skills to enable themselves to become independent has joined the roster of non-profits on KeysReuse.com.
Called TIES, or Transition to Independence, Employment and Success Program, the group operates, among others, “More Than a Muffin” in which students learn to bake healthy muffins enabling them to work in the local tourism and food service industry.
But it gets better. The group is looking for gardening equipment because they will be growing edible items in the garden that they will use to make those muffins. TIES hopes locals will donate everything from buckets to watering cans. To see everything that TIES wants, people should log onto KeysReuse.com and search under “items.”
KeysReuse.com enables residents of the Keys to view what more than 30 local non-profits need. It’s an opportunity for people to put unused or unneeded items to a good second use. The website makes it very easy to find who needs what. Most of the non-profits will come and pick up donations. People who have items to donate – from appliances to vehicles — should log on to KeysReuse.com.
The website’s motto is “Don’t Throw It Away, Give It Away.”

The Marathon Wild Bird Center could really use a computer monitor and one of those big older kind would be fine. So if you have one lurking in your closet please contact Kelly Grinter at email@example.com. They could also use a power strip for plugging in the computers and heat lamps.
