SCRAP, the nation’s original Creative Reuse Center,
celebrated our 40th anniversary in 2016!
Thanks to all of our friends and supporters who helped us celebrate at our sold-out event.
We partook of great brews and wines paired with multi-cultural finger food. We created art masks from reused materials and took them home. We met fabulous people, enjoyed scintillating conversation and had some surprises that delighted us.
SCRAP’s found, Anne Marie Theilen was feted for her important contributions.
Great entertainment was provided by the renowned Ruth Asawa School of the Arts Jazz Combo.
The Gala took place Thursday, October 20th, at the beautifully restored, historic Bayview Opera House.

We make a huge variety of materials available at no or very low cost at our 5,000 square foot depot in the Bayview district of San Francisco. Our inventory changes too often to list on our website, but you can get a sense of what we have here and here.
We support teachers, artists, the environment and workforce development projects.
