Volunteers Needed for December Gift and Toy Swap

It’s time to start planning the 2014 December Gift and Toy Swap!  This year it will be Saturday December 13th, 2pm, at the Presbyterian Church of Laurelhurst in NE Portland.  By volunteering, you assure yourself a place at this very popular swap!

Here’s the volunteers we still need – please let me know if you’d like to fill one of these positions.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:

  1. Van to pick up and deliver remainders. Bring your van and pick up boxes/bags on day of swap between 3:00pm and 3:15pm. Angela has volunteered to be van #1 and will pick up and give away remainders for free. We need one additional volunteer with a van willing to pick up and deliver remainders, in case there is more than one van of stuff remaining… you can choose the lucky remainder recipients, OR you can load up your van and play Santa with Angela since she has places to take these goodies:)
  2. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!  WE’VE GOT THE BAGGERS/BOXERS JOB COVERED! 2+ people who will bring some boxes/bags, and bag/box up remainders after swap.  We’ve got 4 people signed up, but it’s always good to have a few more.  You can get free boxes from many grocery stores.  Arrive any time between 1pm and 1:45pm so you have time to put out your own stuff.  Start packing up around 2:45pm or whenever the crowd has thinned out, and stay until everything is packed up (est 3:15pm).

Here’s an update from Kelsey Painter on the Swap Remainders she gathered for the Portland Free Street Store.  What a positive difference you make every time you bring your used items to a free swap – a positive difference for your own wardrobe, having free frugal fun with friends, and sharing so others can have fun, too.  Thanks for your willingness to play.
