Message from Trash to Treasure: Still Going Strong

Many of you have expressed concern about Trash to Treasure with the closing of the thrift store.

While the thrift store did not generate the levels of income that we had hoped, we actually made money on the venture.

Trash to Treasure's Board is looking for ways to reach the next level of sustainability.  We are exploring multiple options.  Nothing ventured nothing gained.

We remain extremely solvent and we are here to stay.  We continue to partner with major organizations to raise funds and promote reduce, reuse, recycle.  As most of you know we recently teamed with Whole Foods Fort Lauderdale and their 5% day.  Our Trash2Art event was our most successful yet.  We are involved with a matching grant fund-raising campaign with Jack Johnson's Ohana Foundation.  Once again this year, we will team up the the Tribune Company for the CityLink Beerfest.

There has never been a better time to become a member of Trash to Treasure.  Memberships play an important role in our success.  About half of our income is derived from them.  Please spread the word about our organization.

Thanks for your concern and support.

Trash to Treasure
Board of Directors
