Shakeup at the Scrap Box

Karen Ensminger's retirement triggered a national takeover.

From the November, 2017 issue

When we spoke to Scrap Box founder Karen Ensminger in 2015, she said that as usual, the local creative reuse center was "hanging by its fingernails" financially. Since then, Ensminger has retired--and the nonprofit has gone through a rebranding, a complete leadership change, and the loss of its long-term employees.

The thirty-five-year-old organization dedicated to children's education and creative reuse of unconventional scrap materials, is now SCRAP Box, operating under the national nonprofit SCRAP USA.
