Help Us Build Community

SCRAP has been supporting teachers, students and artists since 1976

However, life is no longer as we knew it. Social distancing limits our physical closeness, and with educators, children and families secluded at home, it is essential that we invest in new ways to support our community where they are.

Please help us grow these new programs, all offered free of charge:

SCRAP Eco-friendly Masks

1,800+ face masks have been sewn by our volunteer artists and donated to the African American Art & Culture Complex and the Bayview Seniors Center. And more are needed!

SCRAP School Supply Program

We have provided 200+ bags of school supplies to at-risk public school students and teachers in our Bayview neighborhood. With schools re-opening, more teachers and students need supplies!

SCRAP in a Box Craft Kits

Since May, we have delivered 500 kits to families in need, in partnership with the Latino Task Force and SF’s Community Learning Hubs. Our youth need craft kits to foster curiosity and growth!

Every amount counts, no matter how much you can give at this moment.

We truly appreciate your support of our pursuit to enrich the lives of the most vulnerable Bay Area youth through the cultivation and appreciation of the arts.
