About SCP

Serendipity, Collage & Potpourri (SCP) is a nonprofit tax exempt (501c3) community organization. Now celebrating 10 years, SCP has collaborated with Detroit area community outreach programs, and churches along with public and charter schools for the betterment and improvement of the students’ learning environment to help ensure that “No child is without the basics to succeed.”

Our Backpacking for Success Program is a unique program will provide backpacks and various school supplies for disadvantaged students, grades K-8. The mission of this project is to provide our students with the school supplies that they need for the start of the school year. We hope to address the needs of those Detroit schools, whose students are unable to afford basic school supplies. We strive to eliminate the interruption in education that the lack of common school supplies generally causes. 

Serendipity, Collage and Potpourri hosts several annual events that act as fundraisers and donation drives for the Backpacking For Success program. Our annual Backpack Music Festival this year will take place Saturday, July 11, 2015 at MSU Community Music School-Detroit in the heart of Midtown, 3408 Woodward Avenue, featuring some of Detroit’s most talented DJ’s providing their time and talent for this fun filled family event. 

Although our goal is to collect physical Backpacks and School Supplies, we will also gladly accept monetary donations via PayPal that will go towards the purchase of supplies. Please click here to visit the Donate link for more information.
