Members of NAEIR, the National Association for the Exchange of Industrial Resources, have access to over $100 million worth of free supplies and merchandise every year. All you have to do to get your share is to join NAEIR’s Basic Program and start submitting your requests for free stuff.
NAEIR is a nonprofit that rescues new, unsold supplies and merchandise from leading U.S. businesses and distributes it to a network of worthy nonprofit organizations. This allows schools and nonprofits to stretch their budgets, acquire needed supplies, and expand services to their constituents. It allows businesses to recycle high-quality goods, reduce waste, and give back to the community.
Over 500 top companies donate high-quality merchandise to the free supply program, including Microsoft, Gateway, Stanley Tools, Reebok, 3M, Rubbermaid, Readers Digest Books, Rand McNally, Gillette, Xerox, BRIO, and many more. Items are stored in a 10-acre warehouse in Galesburg, Ill.
Every month NAEIR offers brand new items through catalogs and their website,
Since this is a member-supported nonprofit program, you pay a small fee to cover the shipping and handling costs, but all of the items you receive are free of charge.
As long as you belong to a school, church, government organization, or any 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and can use products for the care of the ill, needy or minors, upon approval you can be added to the NAEIR membership roster. You must provide direct service to those listed above. The application fee is $59 annually.
To ask for your free supply information kit, call 1.800.562.0955, press 2 or go to www.naeir.org. You’ll get complete details on how to become a member of NAEIR and start requesting your free supplies and merchandise.
