One Man's Trash, is Another's Treasure!

Nelson Molina, NY Sanitation Worker, has collected 30+ years of items and has them on display in his work garage!

Treasures in the Trash is a museum in New York City created by 30+year NYC Sanitation worker, Nelson Molina, the father of one of our Freeya members. Nelson collected discarded items from the garbage and put them on display in his work garage.

Now his collection is thousands and thousands (and thooooousands!!) of items that people can go see! He holds tours, and speaks at local art houses, universities and colleges about his collection. Sounds right up our alley, right!?

So when TL Frasqueri-Molina called us up to say our art show, Art of the Free, reminded them of their dad's life's work, we couldn't believe it. Mr. Molina is creating history while preserving it , and we're beyond honored to even share a sentence with him. Check out what Nelson has created. Pretty sure that if you're here, you're going to love it.

Here's the cool part: we're not done yet. We're on a mission to make Freeya even more awesome, and you're a crucial part of that journey. No bug is too small to report , and we're grateful for every single one you've brought to our attention. As a token of our appreciation, we're sending rewards your way for those fix-worthy bugs.

We know making apps is a wild adventure, and we're a small, scrappy startup in Portland making it happen. But with your support and feedback, we're making Freeya better every day. Thanks for being an essential part of our community!
