CAUTION: REnovations and REawakening Ahead!

In 2013, Resource Depot moved to Florida Avenue in West Palm Beach. With the move and expansion, the Resource Depot team dramatically expanded our programming to the community while fulfilling our mission of a mindset SHIFT:  Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.

  • Material Marketplace - our “alternative art materials” store repurposes over 250,000 lbs. of donated “excess” items a year for art and educational purposes for more than 700 monthly visitors.

 

  • Educational “cREative” Programs – through on and off-site field trips, afterschool programs, community events and summer Junk Camp, we deliver hands-on learning experiences to over 13,000 young people to teach environmental stewardship through creative hands-on fun.

 

  • The GalleRE - features a rotating exhibit of work by local artists, young and old, professional and emerging, who create through reuse. 

 

In 2020, Resource Depot is making another SHIFT.  We need your help.

 

The shift is both physical - relocating to an adjacent, empty space, and symbolic – enabling us to continue our work of shifting the community’s understanding about the negative impact of "consumer excess" on the environment to the steps each one of us can take to improve our positive impact on the earth.

The new Resource Depot center will:

  • Be one of the anchors in Industry Alley, a new development project by the same developers who created The District & Grandview Market in West Palm Beach, that services our neighboring residents and design businesses;

 

  • Maximize our space to offer programs through a carefully designed layout for functionality, efficiency and artistic flair.  Additions include a cREative Program annex upstairs and a flexible GalleRE space downstairs to support education, arts and local makers;

 

  • Increase capacity to save waste, save money, support education and the arts, benefit environment, benefit community at large;

 

  • Be the hub for Creative Reuse and Upcycling in a modern, industrial and comfortably, air-conditioned building;

 

  • Build relationships between givers, gatherers, creatives of all kinds.

Support of this Make SHIFT Happen campaign is vital to our

RElocation, REnovation and  REawakening of REUSE in the community.
