Volunteers age 10 and up are welcomed.

Would you like to volunteer but are struggling to fit the hours into your busy schedule?

Become a Donation Ambassador for Arts & Scraps, and we will work with your schedule to help you achieve all the volunteer hours you need.

As a Donation Ambassador you will be gathering creative materials to aid us all in taking them out of the waste stream; while adding to the stock in our community resource center. We turn the materials into educational and creative learning opportunities. While you reach out to your community for donations, you are building integral awareness and partnerships for Arts & Scraps with your local networks.

We will give you a Printable PDF info sheet so your community can learn about Arts & Scraps. Along with a printable PDF list of items we are looking for as donations for our community resource center. Once you have finished your donation drive, or gathered enough donations to fill up your transportation. We then ask you to bring the donations to our community resource center. Here you will get a chance to check out our community resource center and see all the great materials and projects we offer.

We will give you a hours sheet to record your time spent gathering and transporting your donations. Along with a certification of acknowledgement for your work as a Donation Ambassador.

Please feel free to email with any additional questions you might have.
