A couple of upcoming clothing swaps coming up in the neighborhood. Never been to a ‘swap’ exactly but seems like a good idea. I suggest washing before wearing…
Greenpoint Church will hold a children’s clothing and toy swap on President’s Day, Monday, Feb. 18 from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Please set aside your clean, gently worn and new items that your child no longer wears or uses. All baby and kids items 0-5 years are welcome (including shoes, books, toys, and all accessories). Swap and take home your favorites for free. All unclaimed items will donated directly to children in need at the Henry Street Settlement in Manhattan.
How the Swap will work: We will have tables set up with sections designated for age/size. Parents/caregivers will place their unwanted items in the appropriate age/size sections and then they are free to take any items from any other section. If you would like to bring your items to the church before the Swap, you may drop off items on Sunday, Feb. 17 between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. and on Monday, Feb. 18 between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
If you cannot attend the Swap and would like to donate your child’s items, we will make a few pick-ups. Please e-mail Jill Corson Lake at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a time. Greenpoint Church www.greenpointchurch.org 136 Milton Street, Greenpoint, Brooklyn NY 11211. COST: $5 per adult with at least a grocery sized bag of items, $10 per adult without a bag. Kids are free.
