Description

NEW INFO!!! PLEASE READ!!!!
Item Drop Off: 9:00-10:15 am
Swapping: 10:30 - 11:30 am


HOW IT WORKS: Exchange your GENTLY USED items (nothing ripped, stained, broken, or missing pieces) for an equal number of items.


***PLEASE INSPECT YOUR ITEMS DILIGENTLY!!!!*** The way this swap remains the high quality event that it is, is by not including dirty, torn, dingy, or "unswappable" items. It is too difficult (and can be downright yucky!!!) for our volunteers to count and sort through junk. We hate throwing things away and our goal is to keep as much out of the landfill as possible and make this as fun and easy for our volunteers as possible, therefore, we are implementing some new rules.


1) All items with small pieces MUST be together. Please use a bag to contain toys with small pieces or items with multiple parts. If a volunteer finds it difficult to contain your items, they will be returned to you and you will be given credit only for what the volunteer was able to count.


2) While sorting your items, if our volunteers come across **3** dirty, stained or otherwise "un-swappable" items, you will be given credit for what the volunteer has counted thus far and no more. So PLEASE sort your things before hand to get maximum credit.


3) We appreciate your donation of large items! Please make sure the stroller, crib, bouncy seat, etc is in CLEAN and USEABLE condition.

4) No perishable or partially used items! If you have left over baby food, formula, lotion, powder, etc, please post this to the swap page directly or donate them to the JFS food pantry. Unfortunately these things often end up being thrown away after the swap.


WHAT TO BRING:
Clothing sizes Newborn-14 and maternity, Toys (large & small), Books, Other Essentials (diapers that don't fit anymore, bottles, strollers, etc...) Ages newborn through preschool!!!



INVITE YOUR FRIENDS: This is a FREE EVENT & anyone can attend!!! All unclaimed items will be donated to Jewish Family Service, G'mach The Jewish Gift Closet, Bundles for Babies, and other local charities.



**Sort items by gender AND size. It doesn't have to be perfect, but please do your best. It makes it much easier for our volunteers.
**Attach items that go together like 2 piece outfits, toys with many pieces, etc.


If you have any questions, especially about what we consider "swappable items", please contact ShalomBabySwap@lfjcc.org.


We always need volunteers! We will need help sorting and putting out items, set up and clean up. This is a great opportunity for our Shalom Baby/PJ Library/Family Matters parents to get involved. To volunteer, visit: http://www.signupgenius.com/
