Community Organization of the Month

January 2020 - SCARCE

SCARCE is a not-for-profit environmental education and resource rescue organization. We provide environmental education to kids and community members as well as projects to help people take action to protect our resources. The resources rescued (books, musical instruments, school and art supplies) are chosen by teachers and others serving kids and adults in need. 7.5 million books have been chosen by teachers and not for profit organizations since 1991! We want everyone to have the tools they need to reach their potential in a healthy world.
