SCARCE

School & Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education

It’s easy for us on the SCARCE team to continue doing what we do. Why? Our motivation comes every day in the lovely notes of thanks we receive. The SCARCE Team is always deeply touched when reading these kind words in return for our environmental education programs and the SCARCE Rescue Programs. We’re grateful to the people who support us each and every day!
