EAST BAY DEPOT OF BAY AREA CREATIVE RE-USE INC

Image_202108121231

Hi there,

We are trying to increase awareness and impact of our work across the Bay Area by hosting art/DIY tables at community events. Recently, we hosted a print making table at Community Foods Market anniversary event and a beading table at Cr8 Day in Jack London. Our next event is the Picnic on Telegraph, a neighborhood-wide event hosted by Temescal Business Improvement District, where we will have Mini Macrame stations.

As a volunteer for these events you would be responsible for helping with set-up, assisting visitors that come to our DIY stations and clean-up. If you thoroughly enjoy these events and want to be more involved we are also open to volunteers designing and hosting DIY stations with minimal staff support. We would still supply all the necessary materials, of course.

Mission Statement

The mission of The East Bay Depot is to divert waste materials from landfills by collecting and redistributing discarded goods as low-cost supplies for art, education, and social services in our Depot Store. The educational mission is to increase the awareness of school children and the general public regarding the green benefits of reusing materials.

Description

The Depot has been a staple for teachers and artists for over 40 years. The East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse is a 501c3 non-profit. Founded in 1979 by a group of Oakland Public School teachers the mission of the depot is to educate the community on the green benefits of reuse and to divert waste materials from the landfills by collecting and redistributing the discarded goods as low-cost supplies for art, education, and social services in the Depot store at 4695 Telegraph Ave, Oakland.

Since 1997 the Depot became the East Bay’s leading reuse organization providing free supplies to tens of thousands of
local educators assisted countless artists and crafts-people with their projects and diverted thousands of tons of reusable materials
away from landfills, and toward useful second, and even third, lives.

Working with other community partners over the years, the Depot has collected and distributed critical supplies to refugees and victims of the war in Afghanistan, clothing, and bicycles to orphanages in Nicaragua as well as humanitarian aid shipments to victims of Hurricane Katrina. Closer to home, the Depot organized collection of clothing and hygiene products for the Northern California Rural Poverty program.
