Brooklyn: Town Square’s Greencycle Spring Cleaning Swap
April 13 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pmFREE
Have lots of stuff taking up space in your closet? Bring everything over to the Greencycle Spring-Cleaning Swap at the Leonard Public Library on Saturday, April 13th.
NO NEED TO BRING THINGS TO TAKE THINGS!
Join Town Square’s efforts to recycle, reuse and reduce! Drop off your cleaned and functionable SHOES, BOOKS, TOYS, BICYCLES, PHONES, HOUSEHOLD ITEMS & ELECTRONICS – and browse the selection and score! We’ll accept electronics until 2 PM. Out of consideration for others, we may limit folks to the greater of 1 bag or the number of bags that you’ve brought to donate to the swap. We don’t allow taking donated items to resell. Why? Because many donors make this request. Also, all remaining items are donated to local homeless shelters for our neighbors truly in need.
Since 2008, Town Square has been promoting environmental consciousness at the local level through our Greencycle Swaps. We firmly believe that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure! We’re delighted to partner with Home Life Services that runs 5 shelters in Brooklyn and Bronx, including one on Clay Street in Greenpoint. Toys, books and children’s clothing will be earmarked for their Albemarle Family Residence in East Flatbush; this shelter houses +180 children, ages 5 through 18! Please help these children and families while benefiting our environment.
Suggested donation: $10 a family to help cover costs and support local Scouts BSA Pack 7 and Troop 26. Town Square is a qualified 501(c)(3) not‐for‐profit institution. Your donation will be TAX DEDUCTIBLE to the full extent of the law. For more info, please contact Town Square at 347.559.1410 or [email protected] We gratefully thank our partners and sponsors: CM Stephen Levin, CM Antonio Reynoso, NYC DYCD, truly awesome Brooklyn Boy Scouts Troop 26 and Pack 7, Friends of Leonard Library, Leonard Library and Home Life Services.
