Your donations help us bring books and school supplies to children in need. SCARCE appreciates tax-deductible donations of any amount!
The demand for the items we collect has grown. During the past year, SCARCE has provided 4,643 visitors to our facility with approximately 200,000 books. We've also given away 6,095 boxes of school supplies, 9,478 Super Crayons, and 952 bags of crayons as well as white boards, overhead projectors, small electronics, musical instruments, furniture pieces, and many more needed items. Running these programs is only possible through donations--there is no government funding for them.
If you would like to support our programs, which include the Book Rescue, Tools for Schools, and Super Crayon projects, please make a tax-deductible donation. Use the buttons on the right of this page for credit card donations.
Checks and cash are also welcome. Mail a check to SCARCE and we'll be sure to send you a receipt:
