This popular event is for anyone seeking children’s clothing and books. The swap is free and will be held at Hinesburg Town Hall on Saturday, April 2, 9-10:30am.

To ensure another successful swap, donate all gently-used children’s clothing, sized infant to 14 and children’s books, toddler to middle-school level. Drop off clothing and books at Hinesburg Town Hall on Friday, April 1, noon to 8pm, (no toys and no drop-offs on the day of the swap, please). This is a great way to do your spring wardrobe switch, get new sizes for your own kids and pass on some clothing to friends and neighbors.

Sponsored by Hinesburg Community Resource Center’s Friends of Families Program.

Frequently asked questions:
Q: How does it work? 
A: Donate as many gently used items as you want on April 1 (items will not be accepted on swap day). Volunteers will sort clothing by size and gender. We don’t assign dollar values or tally up what you drop off. Participants in the swap can pick whatever they need for their families on April 2.
Q: Do I need to drop off clothing and/or books to participate? 
A: No! If you just need clothing for your family and do not have anything to donate, you are welcome to just shop. 
Q: Can I drop off toys? 
A: We do not accept toys. Please consider donating those elsewhere.
Q: I can’t drop my clothes/books off on April 1 between 12-8. Can I still make a donation? 
A: Yes. Please call or email Rachel Kring to make alternate arrangements at 482-4667 or HinesburgFOF@gmail.com.
