SCRAP Board Report
I HEART SCRAP! Sunday is February 12 . . . . Join us for a heart felt fundraiser with music, food, and fun crafts just in time for Valentines Day! Bring your sweetie, family, and friends out to support SCRAP. Your financial support helps bring supplies to schools, divert waste, and promote creative reuse.

It's exciting to see SCRAP grow and change. The warehouse is busy, the staff is amazing, and the board is dedicated to sustaining the momentum. Point your browser to the board bios on our web site for an introduction to the directors who give their time to SCRAP. We are gearing up for a day of strategic planning, May elections, and projects with our community partners. Special thanks to the Haas Board Fellows, Full Circle Fund and Pivot Nonprofit Consulting for joining our team.

It takes a village and SCRAP thrives on building community. Thanks for all your support. Looking forward to seeing you on February 12 at the I HEART SCRAP! Sunday.

If you love SCRAP, you'll love all the things we have planned for you this February.


This Sunday, we are hosting our I Heart SCRAP! party and fundraiser, complete with the "Nothin' But Fun band, the "Banh Mi Love you Long Time" food cart, live art creation and sale, hands on activities, and a whole new display of nice vintage and specialty items on sale. The party will be Sunday February 12th from 1pm to 4pm and we will be collecting donations at the door on a sliding scale. Hope to see you there!


Even though February is a short month, the fine folk who coordinate SCRAP's programs were able to squeeze three amazing workshops in: Reddy Lieb's Recycled Glass & Collage, Dorothy Yuki's Star Books, and Project Accessorize with emiko oye and Shana Astrachan. I can't wait to see all the amazing art that comes out of these workshops.


If you haven't been to one of Susan Solstice's Drop-In Jewelry Making workshops, you should make some time to check it out. For a small donation, Susan can give you personalized hints on how to create beautiful accessories out of SCRAP materials or treasures you have always wanted to incorporate into your outfit. There's no sign up necessary, just show up at SCRAP's workshop area Mondays between noon and 2pm.


Have you forgotten about your New Years resolution to volunteer more? Never fear, come to SCRAP's Fabric Rolling Team meeting! We constantly have a large pile of fabric that needs sorting, organizing, and rolling so that we can put them out in nice neat stacks in our fabric cubbies. Please come to SCRAP Tuesday afternoons from noon to 5pm to help us roll fabric. Volunteers get first dibs on the nice fabric that come through SCRAP's doors.


SCRAP is also planning on attending several community outreach events this month. We just went to Sunnyside Elementary's craft night and Yelp's party last week and have the Larkspur Farmer's Market(Feb 11 & 25) and Open Make day at the Exploratorium (Feb 18) planned.


Also, if you are the parent or teacher of a San Francisco 2nd or 3rd grade class, we have some funding for field trips. Please contact me if you are interested.


Our February Teacher Give-Away was a great hit, with over 60 teachers attending, but we always have materials for more. Please tell all your favorite SF teachers about our Teacher Give-Aways (the next one is March 3rd from 1pm to 4pm)


Scrappily yours,
