San Francisco's Creative Reuse Depot

Supporting Teachers, Students & Artists Since 1976

We are the longest running non-profit Creative Reuse center in the country. We continue our 40+ year mission through:

  • Free School Supplies for Teachers and Students

  • Teacher Development Workshops

  • School Field Trips

  • Workplace Development for Students with Disabilities

The SCRAP Depot is also a gathering place for all local artists, crafters and makers as we remain a beloved space to:

  • Source zero-waste materials and art parts for creative projects at low-cost

  • Learn creative reuse through fun and interactive community workshops for children and adults
