How it works:

  • If you have something to DONATE, Just stop by and hand it in!
  • If you have something to SWAP, simply trade a too-small item for something that fits.
  • If you don’t have anything to swap but need an item, BUY any used items for only $5 each.

  • LL Skills Assessment days: February 22 and February 29
  • Parents Meeting at Zion: March 30

What to swap, donate or buy:
