Calling all Queens teachers, educators and school leaders: Get your hands on free school supplies from this Long Island City warehouse starting next week.

From Aug. 20 to the end of September, Materials for the Arts will be hosting the fourth annual “Back to School” kickoff, where public schools and nonprofits are invited to get free supplies for their students. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, those interested can make appointments to come to the 35,000 square foot warehouse (33-00 Northern Blvd.) and “shop” the materials for up to two hours.

Those interested in participating in the shopping sprees must be registered MFTA members, but organizations that are not can become members if they fit all the eligibility requirements. Existing members can log in and make an appointment through the MFTA website. Kaiser encourages teachers to contact their principals to find out if their schools are members and to make shopping appointments.
