ScrapsKC’s mission is to care for Kansas City’s environment, education and homeless through creative reuse. With the mantra ‘reuse, repurpose, renew,’ ScrapsKC takes your old stuff and creates new possibilities for creation. Their store not only diverts tons of trash from the landfill, but it also provides resources for artists, teachers, makers, churches, scouts, and more. So make sure to check them out if you need supplies for your next craft or if you have some stuff you think they could sell!
In addition, here are two volunteer opportunities coming up:
Sip and Sort – August 8
Do you love fabric, notions, yarn and everything textile? Join them for our first Sip and Sort as they go through thousands of pounds of donated fabric and get it prepared for the floor. 5:30-9:00pm at ScrapsKC, light food and beverages (including beer and wine) will be served.
Super Organizers Needed – August 14
Do you love when everything has a place and everything is in it’s place? Do you love organizing other people’s stuff? ScrapsKC needs 18 volunteers to help August 14 from 8:30am-12pm. They’ll be organizing the merchandise bins/shelves, labeling and spiffying up the store. General organizers are needed as well as organizers who are very experienced in art supplies, craft materials and scrapbooking. Sign up here.
