Volunteer Spotlight: Amy Grafe


We love our volunteers!

The majority of the donations processing is done by volunteers at the center. We’d like you to meet one of the special folks behind all this hard work. Amy Grafe

What motivates you to volunteer?

I like to feel useful.

Why Austin Creative Reuse?

I love arts and crafts, especially reusing and re-purposing unloved things. I have always saved bits of ribbon, elastic, or anything else I could imagine finding another use for, so ACR was a perfect fit for me. I also love the people I have met here and being around all their creativity is inspiring.

How long have you volunteered with ACR?

About 3 years.

Are you more into the arts aspect of ACR or the conservation aspect and why?

I love both the art and conservation. There is so much waste in this world. I am happy to be involved in keeping things out of the landfill.

Where else have you/do you volunteer?

I haven’t volunteered with any other organization in a long time…I probably should.

What do you enjoy the most out of volunteering for ACR?

I love being surrounded by creative people and endless arts and crafts supplies.

Do you have any interesting or funny stories about something that happened while you were volunteering at ACR?

I have no stories…or…What happens at ACR, stays at ACR.


Thanks for all you do Amy!!
