Last year SCRAP volunteers contributed over 7,000 hours of their time and energy to help us fulfill our mission. Most volunteers are scheduled for one 3-hour shift in the store each week, as well help in many other ways.
Do you value environmental sustainability and the power of creative expression? If you believe enough stuff already exists in the world and that we should all reduce our impact by buying less and enaging our creativity more, then become a SCRAP supporter by making a donation to further our impact on local communities.
We count on your generosity as an individual, foundation, corporate sponsor, or partner.
You feel the creative, environmental, and educational love from SCRAP. You return the love by adding to our resources so we can share with others. It becomes a circle of love that keeps giving – to you, to us, and to the entire community.
