Frequently Asked Questions

What is Starfish Treasure?

Starfish Treasure is an alternative way to celebrate giving. Rather than purchasing an expensive item for a loved one, you can choose to invest in the relationship with the loved one and simultaneously purchase a gift for someone in need in the loved one’s name. You can truly impact the life of a person in need, the life of your loved one, and your own life!

Can I purchase gifts at all times of the year?

Yes. All gift items are available online year-round at www.starfishtreasure.org.

Can I get a gift acknowledgement card?

Yes! After placing your order, you may pick up a card in person at the Starfish Treasure table. You may also download a card online to mail or email to your honoree. Boca Raton Community Church is unable to mail cards for you.

Who operates Starfish Treasure?

Starfish Treasure is an outreach ministry of Boca Raton Community Church, run by church volunteers who are excited about the idea of making a difference in the lives of others while reducing excess in their own.

Why is it called Starfish Treasure?

The “Starfish” part of the name comes from the Starfish Story, which illustrates that one person doing one simple act of kindness can make a huge difference in one other person’s life. The “Treasure” part of the name comes from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, in particular Matthew 6: 19a, 20-21.

Matthew 6: 19a, 20-21 – Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth... But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
