Scrap It Up is an all volunteer, non profit organization. We have our charter under the umbrella of the Kennedy Heights Arts Center, https://kennedyarts.org/
All proceeds, over our costs, are donated back to the local arts and “green” community.
Here’s some of our past projects:
We have an on going relationship with April Pandora at Eden Organic Gardens, https://www.edenurbangardens.com/about
As fresh food, fruits and vegetables, are sometimes in short supply at food pantries, we have an agreement with April to buy fresh produce every week which she delivers to our local food pantry, The Caring Place,
-grants to Coop Cincinnati, https://coopcincy.org/ , earmarked for small business loans to “green” and arts initiatives. Coop Cincinnati provides small business loans to folks, (think immigrants, women, people of color), who might not have access to more traditional loan sources such as banks and credit unions.
-Donations to New Life Furniture Bank, https://nlfurniture.org/, New Life collects gently used or discontinued new furniture and makes it available to people in our community who are re-establishing themselves after a period of being unhoused.
-sponsorship of Buddy Benches made from collected bottle caps at neighborhood schools.
