You Might Have Noticed Some Changes…

We are happy to announce the launch of our new website!

Even though the site has a new look and feel, you will find that we stuck to our Scrap-py roots and reused a lot of videos, pictures and content. We are still the Scrap; but just like the spruced up Scrap Thrift, everything will just be easy to find!

Our New Features

You spoke. We listened. We are excited to roll out some exciting new features to our website. Some of the changes came from ideas that came from you, our community, and some were needed as we strive for an ever-growing capacity to serve you better. Just to highlight a few:

A streamlined menu with fewer drop-downs

We made it easier to find the things that you are looking for. If you come across something that you can’t find, let us know at webmaster@scrapexchange.org.

Explicitly stated Focus areas

We wanted to clear about where we are dialed in and what we value.

Outlined list of Services

You will now be able to easily find the services that The Scrap Exchange offers through Outreach & Education, from parties, to workshops, to room rentals. You will be able ask about availability right through the website by simply submit a form on the service’s description page.

Apply online

Do you want to work with us? We want to work with you! We now have the capability to accept online job applications. Just look for Jobs in the link in the footer (bottom panel of the website) to find an opportunties to join our amazing team.

Easier to find Volunteer Information

The Volunteer tab has been added to the top-level menu. Although several updates are on the way for this, you will find it easier to donate your most precious resource: your time.

Speaking of Donations…

We steamlined information about giving your other precious resources as well. Become a part of something bigger at The Scrap by giving your old item new life or by the variety of ways you can give monetarily. We appreciate every donation and the volunteers that make us run like clockwork.

We brought back the Calendar, with a twist

We have a new calendar that will also allow you to find Events held by the Scrap Exchange, and buy tickets here on our website, rather than pay Eventbrite a familiar fee. You can also find a calendar of our Creative Classes and for our Volunteers.

We hope you take a while to look around. Again feel free to reach out to us and tell us what you think by emailing us at webmaster@scrapexchange.org.
