“We want to bring all sorts of people together, build a community and then learn from each other. There are so many things that we can learn – whether it`s educationally, environmentally, creatively – about the way we live.”

Group Volunteer Opportunities

Church groups, businesses, scouts, school kids, college students, mom groups, golf or tennis buddies, or any other group you belong to, are invited to volunteer together at ScrapsKC. We also ask each member of the group to bring a dignity or survival item for our homeless volunteers.
