Dear Friends of Scraps KC,
The holidays are a perfect time for making dreams come true. It has always been a dream of mine to open Kansas City’s first creative reuse center. As the founder of Scraps KC, thanks to the generous support of many of you, we celebrated our third month in business, just in time to add a dose of inspired creativity to the holidays!
What is a creative reuse center?
Scraps KC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides businesses and industrial centers in greater Kansas City with a place to donate their discarded materials like vinyl, outdoor fabrics, yarn, metals, woods, carpet squares, paper, plastics, cardboard tubes, and much more that would otherwise end up in the landfills. Instead of throwing items into a landfill, businesses donate materials to Scraps KC to be resold to artists, teachers, DIYers, scouts, churches, makers, other individuals and organizations at a dramatically reduced cost. Scraps KC also provides a central location for these individuals and groups to learn about creative reuse and to design works of art for themselves.
