Arts & Scraps Day

By: Paulina Kostecki
On Tuesday, August 7, OpTech partnered with a nonprofit called “Arts & Scraps” to assemble and donate craft kits. As a company, OpTech raised approximately $750 and assembled 100 craft kits that were later donated to the Detroit Boll Family YMCA located in downtown Detroit.
Arts & Scraps is a nonprofit organization that uses recycled materials to help people of all ages think, create, and learn. This organization looks for groups and/or individuals interested in volunteering or donating, which leads to their strong, artistic impact on the metro Detroit area. In fact, Arts & Scraps recycles 28 tons of materials every year, while also serving over 275,000 children in 3,000 locations. Arts & Scraps focuses on incorporating STEM education into their crafts.
OpTech feels grateful to have had this volunteer experience with Arts & Scraps and is looking forward to working with them again on future projects. To learn more about Arts & Scraps, visit the link!
