Community Swap Shop July 13th, 2017 at 1:30 pm - Kids Clothes, Toys, and Games

KIDS CLOTHES, TOYS AND GAMES!
Mid-summer swap out - supplies for babies and kids of all ages. Refresh the kids’ toys, games and puzzles.
Reset the wardrobe for growing bodies. Bring your outgrown but still usable items and go home with something
different.

Put out your items where others can shop. Selection will be based on what others bring; first-come, first-serve and condition is as-is. Item donations are encouraged, but not required for participation. Please collect only for personal use. Items remaining at the end of the swap will be given free to those in need, donated to community non-profits, or recycled, is deemed appropriate. 

THIS IS A FREE COMMUNITY SHARING EVENT!

 

Smart Parents. Ready Kids.

What is ReadyRosie?

ReadyRosie is an early education tool that is currently helping schools and communities across the nation deepen and scale their parent engagement efforts by leveraging the power of video modeling and mobile technology to meet and equip parents where they are. ReadyRosie has hundreds of brief videos in English and Spanish that model everyday interactions in familiar environments with real parents.
