Toy Exchange

The Toy Exchange is THIS week! Dates are July 27 – July 31 in the Multi-Purpose Bldg. It will be open Monday and Tuesday (July 27 & 28) for drop off. Wednesday and Thursday (July 29 & 30) are the open sale days where anyone can come and purchase items (9-7 with everything 25% off on Thursday!). This is a consignment sale for gently used toys and baby equipment with the proceeds benefiting CCS and the children’s programs at POPC. It’s a great way to recycle items that are still in good condition and get “like new” items at discounted prices. Fliers with all the information are on the Nursery Desk in the Ed. Bldg. If you would like to put items in the sale or if you would like to volunteer during the set-up on Monday or Tuesday or during the sale on Wednesday and Thursday, contact Mary Lou at
