Arts & Scraps
February 26, 2010
Arts & Scraps provides Metro Detroit area students with a wonderful experience that need to be reinforced in this "new economy". The elements available to the public provide countless hours of invention to the developing minds, encouraging free thinking and innovation. Arts & Scraps also reinforces the importance of Recycling & Reusing products; an important element with every company today, Corporate Sustainability. They have worked tirelessly to exceed their objectives, continue to grow, and strive daily to improve programs as well as expand expand their reach in the community.
I have had the honor of volunteering with their Marketing Committee to plan and execute new programs, as well as improve existing programs. My children love to explore the center, discovering treasures for future creations. My designer friends were amazed at the variety of materials available for purchase at cost effective prices for their products.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
They are very grateful for volunteer efforts, and open to new ideas. As an advocate of recycling and reusing, Arts & Scraps is a breath of fresh air to all the Moms who insist on structured kits shipped from China.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Enthusiastic, kind, helpful, grateful, and genuine.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Move to a newer facility perhaps in the 'arts district' of Detroit, purchase additional Scrapmobiles, create more video modules, an art channel that could be streamed to reach schools in metro areas and utilize more techonolgy to continue expanding reach.
