Community services is holding a toy and book swap on Dec. 11.
“Why shop if you can swap?” is the motto of the event.
“Children outgrow toys and books so quickly and there’s still a lot of life in them. We know that other children would get some real enjoyment out of these things and they would make great Christmas gifts without having a high price tag affixed to them,” Stacey Lebeau from the Lower Similkameen Community Services Society said.
Those interested in dropping off gently used toys and books can do so between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. at the Lower Similkameen Community Service Society at 310 Veterans Ave.
Anyone can attend the swap/shop day on Dec. 11 from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at 310 Veterans Ave.
A donation is not required to pick out items. Participants are asked to bring a bag to take their items home in.
