Share and trade your kids’ toys and gear on Saturday

share-and-play-poster-grand-openingThis Saturday is the first Ballard Share and Play, an opportunity for families to give or take gently used (or unused) toys, clothing, books and baby/kid gear with community members. Ballard’s Toast (5615  24th Ave NW) is hosting the event on Saturday, August 22 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.

 Ballard Share and Play is organized by Sustainable Ballard, and it “promotes reuse, recycling and recreating while strengthening our community through sharing,” according to their website about the event. They will be setting up donation bins around the neighborhood at the following locations: Ballard Community Center, Ballard Health Club, Ballard Natural Medicine, Ballard Playspace & Toast.

Sustainable Ballard says they need volunteers to steward the donation boxes in these locations including maintenance, straightening and clean-up; contact Barrie if you are interested in being a bin steward, they say.

Share and Play is funded in part by a Neighborhood Matching Fund grant from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.
