April 29 from 9 AM to 1 PM at the City Market
This FREE, family-friendly annual event promotes ecological sustainability and green lifestyle choices.
Participate in the Scraps KC USED SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE to provide re-purposed school supplies to ensure students in economically challenged schools have what they need for classroom learning. Bring used-not-new school supplies and try your hand at a fun make-and-take activity with art educators.
