Holiday Gift Swap

December 12, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join as we host our first annual Holiday Swap!

We love the idea of making sure every child and teen has a present to open this holiday, and we are always looking for ways to be more eco-friendly, so we thought this would be a great way for the community to be ‘green’, and prepare for the holidays together! We invite all parents, caregivers, and adults who have children and teens in their lives to bring in items they are ready to pass along, and pick up some ‘new to you’ items to bring home and wrap up for the holidays!

• Have a board game you no longer play? Bring it along!
• Has that craft kit sat in your closet for too long? I bet there’s a child or teen on the island who would love it as a gift!
• How about that train set taking up space? Bring it in, and go home with something you know would bring a smile to your child’s face!
• Have a new or gently used coat that is too small? Clothes for teens and children are also welcome!

Little items are good for stocking stuffers, too! Everyone is welcome to attend the event, even if you don’t have anything to donate. This time of year can be hard financially on so many, so here’s your chance to save a little money, while still being able to give a happy holiday experience to your family.

Donations will be accepted at any time over the next week or just bring them in on that day and let the swapping begin!

This is an opportunity for parents, adults, and caregivers to ‘shop’ for the children in their life. The kids have their opportunity at the kids store beginning Wednesday, December 18th!
