Mission Statement

For over 30 years, Arts & Scraps has reimagined recycled materials to inspire people of all ages to think, create and learn.


Arts & Scraps is open to the public to stuff bags with safe, accessible recycled industrial materials. We also host educational and curriculum-based field trips, on site workshops for children and adults and create art and curriculum kits for 10 to 35 students. We bring activity tables to events throughout the Metro Detroit Area. Our warehouse uses volunteers of all abilities to sort, pack and prepare materials for our programs and learning kits.

This was a lovely, well organized event. Christmas perfect...down to the day-long falling snow.

I love the idea behind the cause, plus my friend and I had so much fun working with the kids!

They use recycled materials that help encourage creative and artistic thinking in children. It was a fun atmosphere. Will volunteer again.

I've volunteered for them multiple times and enjoyed each project. Lots of creativity in both the kids and the volunteers.
