We need help taking donations, sorting donations, and organizing and stocking our shelves with all those fun materials. Without volunteers there’s no way we could manage the 250 tons of donated materials that come through our doors each year. Fill out the volunteer form below to get started!

SCRAP volunteers have earned credit for community service requirements at their schools, earning letters of recommendation and enhancing their resumes.

SCRAP is part of Project 20, a program allowing eligible people to pay off their San Francisco parking tickets through community service. Click here for more information.

SCRAP is a great place to bring a team to engage in meaningful, hands-on work that truly benefits the community. Our space can accommodate teams of up to 25. Teams can engage in projects such as sorting and organizing materials, making improvements to the depot, or special projects developed with the specific skills or interests of the team in mind.

[Past teams have also engaged in creative team-building challenges using materials in the depot. These activities would be developed by your team or your own team-facilitator, with access to SCRAP’s workshop area and materials depot.]

Still have questions? Fill out the form below to inquire about volunteer opportunities or call (415) 647-1746 M-F 9-5.
