RHINELANDER - A teacher from Illinois who vacations in the Northwoods donated school supplies to the School District of Rhinelander.

Bob Blaus offered several boxes of supplies to Rhinelander students recently.  Blaus is a high school science teacher.


He used a rewards program through Office Depot to generate money for the supplies. The store gives a $20 credit for every 10 empty ink cartridges Blaus turns in.

The program helps keep ink cartridges out of landfills and recycles them instead.

Meanwhile, a program called SCARCE provided the binders.  SCARCE provides environmental education, runs a textbook rescue, and a program called "Tools for Schools", offering resources for home-schooled students.

Rhinelander Summer Work students will fill backpacks with the supplies and give them to area schools this summer.
