ScrapsKC's mission is to care for Kansas City's environment, education and homeless through creative reuse.
Everything has more than one use and we want to create and discover the new uses with you. We have a store filled with the unusual to the normal: specimen cups and coffee bags, liquor bottles and wooden pallets, dried up markers and high end paper and everything in between. There's another life just waiting to happen for all of the materials in our store.
Just as things can get a new lease on life, so can people. ScrapsKC provides opportunities for homeless to hone their skills and give back to their community through volunteering. Every homeless volunteer is provided with a warm meal, sanctuary during their work time, and dignity and survival items. Our goal is to assist them as they restart their lives.
We're all about creating, having fun, learning from each other and building community. Come and join us!
Businesses donate surplus materials, schools give unneeded school supplies, and people like you donate materials from home.
We know that there is more than one way to use an object. Our store is filled with unique and colorful materials just waiting to be creatively reused.
We believe that education reaches far beyond the classroom and new things can be learned everyday through experiences. We teach creativity by providing an unusual array of materials for children to interact with and share unique ways to creatively reuse scraps. Learning how to serve the homeless and bringing our materials into your home, churches and classrooms are other ways for families to learn together.
