SCRAP has become a pivotal resource that reaches into SF neighborhoods where the need for self expression takes on great importance.

Our sustainable arts education program, SCRAP In A Box, brings weekly creative reuse art classes into our communities’ publicly subsidized school programs in collaboration with our seven established non profit partners.

Growing Impact

In 2021, we served over 300 children, and distributed over 1,000 art kits.

Nonprofit Partners

Boys & Girls Club, Bret Harte Beacon, Good Samaritan, Latino Taskforce, Mission Neighborhood Centers, SF Recreation and Parks, YMCA


Our art supplies are repurposed from the SCRAP depot where we divert 220 tons of materials from the wastestream each year
