I arrived 10 minutes before closing and got so excited with the materials that I couldn't finish in that time so they gave me a half hour more to choose stuff. My imagination went crazy thinking about what we could make with the tubes and lids and mylar and bows. We ended up making a bank that looks like a pregnant woman so our participants can save for their baby's future. It turned out very cute!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

bags made of recycled plastic because the paper bags can break with all the stuff

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing all the trash that can be treasures in an art project.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very helpful and friendly

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

gather more trash, offer it even cheaper, provide more recycled materials to schools and other art organizations and families. and at the same time, save the world from dumping more into the landfills and contaminating our world.

Ways to make it better...

i had arrived even earlier.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

probably a place to put all the trash

One thing I'd also say is that...

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
