Oregon creative reuse nonprofit joins forces with locals
Humboldt County has joined Washington, DC, Denton, TX, and Traverse City, MI, as part of Portland’s creative reuse network, SCRAP (School and Community Reuse Action Project).(http://scrappdx.org/). Arcata’s current creative reuse organization, Odds & Ends (http://scraphumboldt.wordpress.com) is honored to join the SCRAP family by becoming SCRAP Humboldt.
SCRAP is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire creative reuse and environmentally sustainable behavior by providing educational programs and affordable materials to the community. SCRAP USA developed to support additional communities with a working creative reuse center model. Humboldt County’s Odds & Ends is a collaborative that exemplifies the values of SCRAP and the merging of creative entities brings our community to a new height of grassroots collaboration.
SCRAP Humboldt’s debut kicks off with a materials exchange event partnering with the City of Arcata and Humboldt State University on October 5 & 6 and a pop-up storefront in November.
SCRAP Humboldt is currently accepting volunteers and donations! For more information, please visit http://facebook.com/scraphumboldt, or email us at Tibora@scraphumboldt.org to arrange an appointment.
