Friends of Families Spring Kids’ Clothing and Book Swap - April 8

Posted by  Wednesday, 05 Apr 2017 03:35 PM
BY RACHEL KRING, COORDINATOR, HINESBURG COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER

This popular FREE event is for anyone seeking children's clothing and books. The swap will be held at Hinesburg Town Hall on Saturday, April 8, 9--10:30 a.m.

To ensure another successful swap, donate all gently-used children's clothing, sized infant to 14 and children's books, toddler to middle-school level. Drop off clothing and books at Hinesburg Town Hall on Friday, April 7, noon to 8 p.m., (no toys and no drop-offs on the day of the swap, please!). This is a great way to do your spring wardrobe switch, get new sizes for your own kids and pass on some clothing to friends and neighbors.

The swap is sponsored by Hinesburg Community Resource Center's Friends of Families Program.

Swap FAQ

Q: How does it work?

A: Donate as many gently used items as you want on April 7 (items will not be accepted on swap day). Volunteers will sort clothing by size and gender. We don't assign dollar values or tally up what you drop off. Participants in the swap can pick whatever they need for their families on April 8.

Q: Do I need to drop off clothing and/or books to participate?

A: No! If you just need clothing for your family and do not have anything to donate, you are welcome to just "shop."

Q: Can I drop off toys?

A: We do not accept toys. Please consider donating those elsewhere.

Q: I can't drop my clothes/books off on April 7 between 12-8. Can I still make a donation?

A: Yes. Please call or email Rachel Kring to make alternate arrangements: 482-4946 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
