Hunting down Jumble Station
Jumble Station became the 'hunted' for some 50 treasure hunters from Harvest Church at Subang Jaya on Merdeka Day. William the organizer of the treasure hunt, a professional hunter himself had stumbled upon Jumble Station while doing some early recognizance trips earlier in the month.
Delighted to discover what JS has been doing to impact the lives of many poor folks and especially focusing on making life easier for poor single parents, he decided to include JS in the treasure hunting route and to make sure they actually got to know us, he had the teams bring items for the shop.
So around noon of Merdeka Day, there were several cars that eventually found their way outside our shop and William himself was on hand to welcome them while yours truly explained to the curious treasure hunters what exactly we were doing to assist those in need.
Most of the hunters came armed with donated items but a few sheepishly said they only got the message early this morning and it was too late but promised to start bringing items to JS from now on. Some of the items donated ranged from a brown mahogany electric guitar to aromatheraphy items, from cooking pots to cute cuddly toys.
For many of the hunters who were accompanied by little kids, JS was a great place to get to know because now they know where to bring their extraneous items plus we were able to show them first hand how our single parents kids also use unwanted plastic items to make robots for sale!
