Volunteers needed for TEDx Boca Raton event - 5/9/14

Trash 2 Treasure FL boarding party of at least 15 pirates (volunteers) needed on Friday, May 9th, at FAU University Theatre in Boca Raton to participate in an event gets international exposure.  The organizers are expecting at least 500 attendees.  To get more information on the event itself, please see the link to the event’s website:


We'll have to setup the night before and early in the A.M.  There is free parking for TEDx Boca Raton guests.  (There should be parking signs.)   Breakfast starts at 8:00 a.m. I believe (may be sooner) and we won't finish up until after 7 p.m. If you can't be there for the whole day, but can come for "shift" that's OK, too.


We need help that day during the day-long event.  We will be handling all the trash during the day, and operating as the Trash Brigade (Trash Talkers) and directing people to the appropriate bins. We'll be composting veggie scraps for Johnny Yuen's (long-time T2T Volunteer/Board member) Mission Green program and collecting for TerraCycle, too. We'll also be making a large sign out of trash materials and inviting participants to add their "trash" to the sign.


Also, if you know of anyone else who might be interested in participating, please let Nanette Saylor, Executive Director, know so she can reach out to them ASAP.   You can reach Nanette at 561-504-1078 or  Please put Volunteer TEDx” in the subject line.  As always, if you need community service hours, please bring your paperwork to the event so that we can sign off on your hours.
