Community Care

SCRAP partners with community members and organizations to use our materials to support our community's needs.

Carpet Squares for Farmer Molly's Outdoor Garden Classroom at Sutro Elementary

Farmer Molly from Sutro Elementary contacted SCRAP because the students in her gardening class were getting cold sitting on the ground. Luckily SCRAP recently had a huge donation of sample carpet squares. We donated 25 to Farmer Molly's class so her budding gardeners now have a comfortable place to learn!

Black History Month

SCRAP partnered with SFUSD's African American Parent Advisory Council's annual Black History Month Book Drive. Each year the AAPAC provides thousands of books to children about Black life and culture throughout the Bayview Community. SCRAP created "Writer Kits" to accompany the book deliveries to encourage children to document their own stories and develop their personal voice as readers and writers.

Providing Materials for Hello Maker

SCRAP partnered with Hello Maker! A San Francisco-based youth-led organization that facilitates design and maker projects for kids. Hello Maker used SCRAP supplies to support the West Portal Maker Playground, a collaboration between West Portal Elementary and Lick Wilmerding High School. We supplied materials for kits supporting design thinking and maker mindsets!

Partnering with Artists Building Communities to Provide Homes

SCRAP partnered with Artists Building Communities, a collective of artists who build homes for folks who were previously unhoused. SCRAP provides ABC with materials for site-specific projects. Pictured here is William loading upholstery fabric for ABC who built a privacy fence for a local homeless encampment.

Building Intergenerational Community with Employment Plus

SCRAP partnered with Employment Plus, an organization who finds work for developmentally disabled folks. SCRAP was thrilled to provide three large tubs of stationary so the Employment Plus group could write letters to seniors suffering from loneliness in isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic.
