Tomorrow, Monday, February 18 from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. the Greenpoint Reformed Church will be conducting a children’s clothing and toy swap. All admission fees will be used to fund their soup kitchen. Here are the deets from their web site:

Please set aside your clean, gently worn and new items that your child no longer wears or uses. All baby and kids items 0-5 years are welcome (including shoes, books, toys, and all accessories) . Swap and take home your favorites for free. All unclaimed items will donated directly to children in need at the Henry Street Settlement in Manhattan.

How the Swap will work: We will have tables set up with sections designated for age/size. Parents/caregivers will place their unwanted items in the appropriate age/size sections and then they are free to take any items from any other section.

If you would like to bring your items to the church before the Swap, you may drop off items on Sunday, Feb. 17 between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. and on Monday, Feb. 18 between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.

If you cannot attend the Swap and would like to donate your child’s items, we will make a few pick-ups. Please e-mail Jill Corson Lake at:

to schedule a time.

COST: $5 per adult with at least a grocery sized bag of items, $10 per adult without a bag. Kids are free. Proceeds of the admission fee will be contributed to the Greenpoint Church Soup Kitchen.

We encourage expecting parents to attend the Swap, too!!!

This is not only a great idea (why some people see fit to outlay so much money towards for designer fettle for toddlers is beyond me— they only grow out of them— and FAST!), but it is also an excellent opportunity to meet some of your fellow Greenpoint parents. Why not take a little time (and a bag or two of little clothes) and make some new friends?
