Monday, Wednesday or Friday when we're closed, groups of up to 6 visit. Help stock materials, reorganize the fabric room and special tasks. The building is heated and air-conditioned, with standing and sitting jobs, with the occasional brute squad* for reorganizing and construction.
(*brute squad--someone (man or woman) who enjoys being active, can carry boxes up to 25 pounds (or can partner with someone to carry boxes) and likes accomplishing big tasks. If construction projects needing power tools are needed, we ask that volunteers bring their own tools.)
We'll Visit You - Contact Ang or call 313-640-9050.
We'll bring an assembly line to your location; sponsor the kits created for a school or organization of your choice (we have a waiting list). We can place materials/programs anywhere in Southeast Michigan, tagged with your logo. More information.
PNC Bank staff members donate many hours through their Growing up Great program. This is accompanied by generous donations--wow.
Ford Volunteer Corps contributes substancial hours annually and we thank them. Their history with Arts & Scraps.
“This is one of those programs where you can go and volunteer and you are helping inspire creativity, and helping kids, the environment, teachers and working together to do it. No matter how much you love your job, it’s nice to spend a day being creative in a totally different way. It reminds you that you can like your co-workers as well as respect them.” Laura Brown, Ford Motor Company
