What is ScrapsKC?

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, ScrapsKC’s mission is to care for Kansas City’s environment, education and homeless through creative reuse.  Since September of 2016, ScrapsKC has diverted over 100 tons of materials from community members, businesses, manufacturers and schools that were destined for the landfill. Additionally, ScrapsKC has reclaimed and repurposed over 15,000 pounds of used school supplies, collected by local schools, and donated them to over 350 teachers in our community. Community and homeless volunteers have spent in excess of 1,500 hours to clean and prepare these supplies so that thousands of children have the tools they need to learn. Scouts and other volunteers have partnered with us to serve over 2,200 breakfast meals on Saturday mornings to hundreds of community members who call the streets home. Additionally, ScrapsKC has welcomed more than 40 unique homeless men and women through their doors to provide love, refuge, food and necessities in return for their help in maintaining the organization ’s expanding facilities. In October 2018 ScrapsKC moved to their new, larger location at 3269 Roanoke Road, Kansas City, MO, so that more materials can be diverted from the landfill and to expand their educational experiences and homeless support services. Learn more at www.scrapskc.org.

How can I help ScrapsKC?

You can donate to us or start a school supply drive at your school or workplace. We also have volunteer opportunities with homeless outreach and helping at the store.
