Volunteers Needed for the Holiday Gift and Toy Swap!

It’s time to volunteer for The 2019 Holiday Gift and Toy Swap! All volunteers assure themselves a place at the swap!  This is a fun holiday tradition for teens and adults to bring giftables they no longer want, and do their holiday shopping free! The date is Saturday December 14th, 2pm at the Evergreen Community Church gym in NE Portland 935 N.E. 33rd Avenue. Portland OR 97232. After we get our volunteers in place, I’ll post the Free Swap details and open up RSVP reservations to the general public on the Swap Positive site mid-November. Due to space constraints, and to keep the venue from being too crowded, all attendees need to be teens or adults (no children) and you must RSVP to the special email that will be created just for this event. If you volunteer, you assure yourself a space at this fabulous free frugal event!

If you’ve never been to a gift or stuff swap, here’s a video to show you how it’s done:
