Saturday, October 27, 2018

12:00 p.m.3:00 p.m.

Bring clean, reusable, portable items such as clothing, housewares, games, books, & toys that you no longer need, and take home something new-to-you, free! You don’t have to bring something to take something.

Volunteering with Stop 'N' Swap

Help GrowNYC create an event where people find things they need and reduce waste! At Stop 'N’ Swaps New Yorkers bring items they no longer need and find things that are new to them. The public is invited to bring and take gently-used items, like books, clothes, household goods, and toys. You don't need to bring something to take something. The only things we don’t take are large items/furniture.

As a volunteer, you will help receive, sort, and display the gently-used items that people bring. You might also help keep areas neat, take pictures, or help promote some of the other great work GrowNYC's Zero Waste Program does!

Stop 'N' Swaps encourage reuse, build community, and reduce the waste NYC sends to landfills. By volunteering you will create an opportunity for people to bring things they no longer need instead of throwing them away, and find things they do want without manufacturing, packaging, or transportation.
