With the holidays coming up, parents are probably looking to weed out some toys before more come into the house. Here’s one option, courtesy of reader Kimberly, that gives you the opportunity to shop too:
It’s time for the 2nd annual CoolMom Toy Sale on Nov 13, 9:30-1:30 at the Wallingford Boys and Girls Club (1310 N 45th). We are now collecting used toys to be sold at the sale. When you donate, you get a $5 (maximum) credit towards toys at the sale & the great feeling of recycling your toys! Our collection bins are at:
* John Stanford International School (N. 42nd Street entrance)
* PCC Green Lake
* Greenwood Elementary
* PCC Fremont
* PNA – foyer of blue building
* Small Faces Child Development Center – 9250 14th Ave NW
If you have a larger item to donate like a climber or a bike, please email Brooke at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange pickup.
Please bag up your items and put your name and phone number on a slip of paper in the bag so you will get your credit.
The bins will be there through Nov. 11, so please clean out your closets and feel the joy of purging. Our sale benefits CoolMom and FamilyWorks.
