Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse is a non-profit that inspires creativity, conservation, and community engagement through reuse.
The Creative Reuse retail store is like an I Spy book in real life! A thrift and craft store in one, we have tons of donated materials thanks to the individuals and businesses in our community. If you’re looking for affordable art and craft supplies, fabric, yarn, sewing notions, office supplies, paper, business and industrial discards and surplus, or vintage curiosities to incorporate into your creative project, you’ll love our shop. We’re open every day from 11 am to 6 pm!
Pittsburgh is on its way to becoming a reuse-centered city, and our shop is a large part of this movement. In 2016 alone, Creative Reuse diverted 41 tons of usable materials from the landfill!
Volunteers are integral to our success, and we couldn't do what we do without them. If you want to work in a creative environment and inspire others, please go to pccr.org/volunteer to fill out an application. We can't wait to meet you!
