Call for Volunteers: Week of June 13

Want to help The Scrap Exchange this week? Volunteers are needed for the following projects and events.

Move Remaining Items Out of 548 Foster St.

The Scrap Exchange needs help making the final move out of our 548 Foster Street location. (Yes, we still have materials sitting in the old store location...) Come to 548 Foster St. on Monday June 13th or Tuesday June 14th between 9am and 5pm (or any part thereof, even an hour or two) to help out. We'll be packing up boxes, getting things off of the ceiling and walls and preparing the space for TROSA to help with the largest furniture. Thanks in advance, volunteers make this whole amazing transition possible!
