Calling all SCRAP PDX fans! Do you love the quirk and environmental goodness that SCRAP PDX brings to Portland? Now more than ever, SCRAP PDX needs community support to weather the COVID-19 crises.
After the pandemic forced us to pause operations for almost two months, we still continue to wrestle with financial uncertainty. We have worked to make SCRAP PDX accessible to the community through an online store and limited shopping, but are held back by COVID restrictions and the need to keep our community safe.
Like a lot of other small nonprofits and businesses, we are faced with mounting expenses and unpredictability. Now, we lay ourselves bare to YOU, to our community, to ask that you show up for us today. If our mission of environmental sustainability, reuse, and creative accessibility in Portland speaks to you and if you believe these values and ideas are worth carrying into the future, please help in any way you can.
Our goal of $50,000 will ensure that we can pay our staff, rent, and utilities, while ensuring community access to SCRAP PDX’s services and programs. SCRAP PDX staff, volunteers, and board members believe in the power of SCRAP's mission and are hard at work making sure that we can continue to do what we love and be in the community for years to come. To say thank you we will be entering all donors who contribute $10+ to our campaign into a drawing to win $50, $25, or $10 in SCRAP Creative Reuse Center credit. If you get your family and friends to donate, but they don't share your reuse obsession, simply ask them to enter your name in the comments and we will give you an additional entry!
Even during our struggle, we have donated materials for mask making, art supplies for youth, and items to help with sanitation for our houseless community. As an organization we’re always looking for ways to give back to our community. To ensure that SCRAP PDX continues to provide services into the future, please consider supporting us in the following ways:
Donate to our GoFundMe
Shop with us in store
Buy a gift certificate
Host a Facebook fundraiser
Tell your friends about us
Your contributions mean SCRAP PDX can continue to divert usable, creative materials from the waste stream and get them into our community. It means we can educate future generations about imaginatively reusing materials and producing less waste. Most importantly it means we can keep our doors open to everyone.
