“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.
Sorting inventory, packaging and grouping materials, setting up displays, and organizing things.
Make and prepare meals
Every month we feed up to 100 people. Volunteers can bring and serve lunch for the homeless or provide breakfast sandwiches and coffee for our Saturday street outreach.
Your business and/or coworkers can assist with workshop preparations, creating samples, or general store maintenance.
