Monthly Event Hosted by ScrapsKC
June 26, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
ScrapsKC is a vibrant and rapidly growing non-profit, creative reuse center located in Midtown Kansas City. For almost three years ScrapsKC has been caring for Kansas City’s environment, education and homeless community through creative reuse. In this short time, they have diverted over 106 tons of material from the landfill and provided new life for unique and creative items destined to clog up our local environment. Additionally, hundreds of metro area teachers have been provided with free and inexpensive materials to enhance the learning experiences of thousands of children.
Come and learn how ScrapsKC has saved almost 25,000 pounds of gently used school supplies from the landfill and provide them to local educators for free! Their mission to serve the homeless through creative reuse extends far and wide. They have served over 2.500 breakfast sandwiches and gallons of coffee to the homeless on Saturday mornings as a platform to encourage them to come to ScrapsKC and volunteer in return for dignity and survival items. They provide the homeless the opportunity to be productive and their store and workshops provide opportunities to break down barriers within our community. You won’t want to miss an evening of fun and creativity at ScrapsKC.
