FAU Day of Service 2015

Trash to Treasure once again teamed with the Weppner Center at Florida Atlantic University for their FAU Day of Service.  Students came out to help us complete some tasks to help our all-volunteer organization.

T2T's Board has alumni and is always eager to participate in activities with the College.

We were impressed when some students took it upon themselves to gather some money to buy some of the homeless around the Center some food.  When the students were in line at Publix, the person in front of them paid for the food they were purchasing.  As they were crossing the street, they saw them man and told him why they were purchasing the food.  Pay it forward!

Here is what Angela Baugher, Assistant Director of the FAU Weppner Center for LEAD & Service-Learning said about the students experience:

The students really enjoyed serving with you!  One student shared how you provided them money to buy a homeless man lunch.  They were blown away by your giving and kindness.  They shared it was their best service experience to date and this student has served with us many times in the past.  Thank you for being a true example of what service is to our students and for going out of your way to work with us even though you were getting a roof!  I hope to partner with Trash to Treasure again in the future!

Trash to Treasure is always in need of volunteers.  It can be one person or a whole group. Your task can be simple or complex.  It is up to you.   Do you have a special skill?  We can probably use it.

Let us know.
