Through my volunteer work with Girl Scouts,it has been my pleasure to shop at Arts & Scraps for materials for the girls, donate to them, as well as to bring the girls in for craft sessions with their staff. My daughters and I have also shopped there for materials just for fun creative time adn for birthday parties. I have told many, many people about this wonderful resource. They are excellent community partners, truly embody one of the GS ideals, to "use resources wisely"; and the staff have always been friendly and accomodating in person and on the phone!

As a Keep America Beautiful affiliate in Mississippi I teach litter prevention, waste reduction and beautification to the residents of our city. Promoting creative recyling to children is the best way to engage them in positive behaviors. Imagine my delight when I visited Arts and Scraps during a session where little ones were having fun creating a personal work of art and recycling at the same time!!!! We need a place like this in every city in the nation. There are lots of materials for just about anything you would like to create, the staff is very helpful if you need just a little direction to complete your project.

I am always amazed at the creativity of the products that come out Arts & Scraps! Over the years, I have donated "scraps" I couldn't imagine a use for and I have requested personalized/themed activities which always turn out to be relevant, imaginative and fun!! When I'm looking for an entertaining activity for kids at my events, I call Arts & Scraps!
