Greencycle back-to-school swap this weekend

Town Square is hosting a back-to-school swap on Saturday, September 12 between noon and 3 p.m.

The event will take place during Greenpoint Open Streets on North 15th Street between Nassau Avenue and Banker Street.

Men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, shoes and books are all welcome. One person’s trash is another’s treasure!

Here are the rules:

• Only cleaned, gently used and usable items
• No need to bring anything to take anything
• May limit folks to 1 bag or the number of bags brought to donate to the swap
• Do not allow taking donated items to resell. All remaining items are donated to local homeless shelters
• Sign up to volunteer for an hour or more with this link.

Partners for this event include St. Mary’s, NBK Mutual Aid and the 94th Precinct.

A $10 suggested donation per family will help cover costs.
