ScrapsKC was established as a non-profit in Kansas City in 2016. Our mission is to care for Kansas City's environment, education and homeless through creative reuse.

In the first three years of its inception, ScrapsKC has diverted over 135 tons of materials from the landfill that are reused for creativity and learning by teachers, artists, designers, makers, families and anyone who can envision a new purpose for something that has been previously loved.

Since 2016, we have rescued and repurposed 24,000 pounds of school supplies that would have entered the landfill. Community and homeless volunteers work tirelessly, every summer, to clean and restore the materials which are then distributed to hundreds of Kansas City teachers for free. This supplies support tens of thousands of local children who are unable to bring their own supplies for basic learning.

Additionally, ScrapsKC engages homeless community members to volunteer at ScrapsKC in return for food and dignity/survival items that help keep them healthy and safe on the streets they call home. Their assistance in our creative reuse center helps us maintain our facilities while strengthening relationships and buliding self-esteem. Our program provides the opportunity for the homeless to be productive and give back to a city that fulfills their daily needs.
