How is this HY-Swap different from previous swaps?
For September 2022, there will not be donations sites and sorting parties. Folks will need to drop their gently used items off pre-sorted into sizes and categories the morning of the swap only. You can then sign up to shop the swap later that day after all the donations have been organized and set up by our volunteers.
*Can I donate large items like cribs, highchairs, car seats, etc?*
Not for this HY-Swap. We are asking folks to only donate small items. Each item must fit into a reusable shopping or brown paper bag. NO LARGE ITEMS WILL BE ACCEPTED. You can donate lots of bags and small boxes of items but no larger items please.
Can I donate items?
Yes, however we will only accept donations on Sunday, September 25th, from 9:00-11:00am at Hyattsville Elementary School.
Where do I go?
To drop off items or to shop the Swap, stop by the Hyattsville Elementary School.
What safety precautions are being taken since COVID is still around?
As safety is a priority, we ask that you register for one of the shopping times in advance to limit crowding. This event reaches many families with children who are too young to be vaccinated, so please wear your masks and social distance. Extra masks will be available at the event for those that need one.
Do I have to GIVE in order to TAKE?
Nope! The spirit of the HY-Swap is to support the community and pay it forward - take what you need now, and if you have items to give at future swaps, great! Donations are from the local community, for the local community.
Is it free?
Yes, the swap is free, but we welcome cash donations to help cover our costs.
Can I drive up and drop off donations?
Yes! You can walk or drive up to drop off donations from 9-11am on Sunday, September 25th, at the Hyattsville Elementary School.
Is there a limit on how much I can take?
Because we never know the volume of donations we'll receive, we are asking everyone to take up to two bags of items. You are more than welcome to come back at the end of the Swap and take as much as you'd like at that time but we want to ensure that as many folks as possible have access to the donations.
