MONETARY DonatIONS to Upcycle
UpCycle is a one-of-a-kind nonprofit located right here in Alexandria, Virginia. We connect creativity and conservation through creative reuse. Please help support us!
In the past year:
UpCycle collected more than 27,000 pounds of materials for art, learning and business purposes that were destined for the waste stream. Then, we went to work redistributing it to the community. We collect, reuse and redistribute materials through our materials resource center which is open to the public Wednesday through Saturday in the Durant Arts Center.
UpCycle shared the joy of creative reuse with thousands of adults and children in the community! We brought science and arts integrated lessons to preschool and kindergarten classrooms. Students and their teachers discovered that cast-offs like bottle caps, bread ties and fabric scraps are an inspiring resource for learning. Adults learned new skills, and we created lots of art together!
Your gift makes a significant impact, helping us to meet our mission to connect creativity and conservation through reuse! UpCycle is dependent on individual, corporate, foundation and government grants to provide a materials resource center and arts educational outreach.
