LOCAL NON-PROFIT INVITES COMMUNITY TO OPEN HOUSE

Featuring repurposed industrial light bulb art

 

TRAVERSE CITY, MI –  SCRAP TC invites the community to an open house
and fundraiser on Friday, April 27, from 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., at 821 Garfield, Garfield Centre.  Tours, demonstrations and a silent auction will be available along with light refreshments and live music.  Local artists will be on hand to offer their art created from repurposed industrial light bulbs in the silent auction. Guests will be invited to indulge their own creative side with the help of SCRAP TC volunteers.

SCRAP TC is an emerging community creative re-use center and educational non-profit that diverts usable materials from the waste stream and then offers those materials at affordable prices for countless creative uses, including arts & crafts, school, office and party supplies.  Education and community outreach programs are also offered.

Some of the numerous materials SCRAP TC accepts include (but is not limited to): yarn, ribbon, puzzle pieces, cassette tapes, records, fabric, corks, art supplies, paper, and other materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill.  Over the past two months SCRAP TC has diverted approximate 2,000 pounds of material from landfills.  Donations are accepted during business hours or by appointment.

Scrap TC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  Additional information
