What a great way to save money and recycle clothes. Organized by a member of the Brooklyn Green Team, the Brooklyn Baby Clothing Swap is just around the corner, so start cleaning out your closets!
The event takes place on Sunday, May 17th from 12pm-3pm at the Prospect Park Branch of the YMCA at 357 Ninth Street in Brooklyn.
Here's how it works: Gather your gently used baby clothes and gear. Then go to the Brooklyn Baby Clothing Swap website and fill out at item list(available on the site) and price your items. Clothing items range in price from $0.50 to $1.00 and there is a pricing guide to help you. Email your list to the email provided and arrange your drop off day. You will receive a confirmation email and on the day of the swap, you can pick up a voucher that's worth 50% of the value of your donated items. Use the voucher or cash to shop.
All proceeds go to the Strong Kids Campaign (you can still participate in the swap even if you are not dropping off items).
The Strong Kids Campaign raises money to ensure that no child is turned away from the many life-enhancing programs the YMCA offers because of an inability to pay.
Also, in keeping with the Brooklyn Green Team's current volunteer challenge, check out the volunteer opportunities on the website.
