What is Ballard Share and Play?
It’s a lot like The Little Free Libraries, but for families to give or take gently used or unused toys, clothing, books, and baby/kid gear. Share and Play promotes reuse, recycling and recreating while strengthening our community through sharing.
Five initial locations have been selected to host Share and Play bins: Ballard Community Center, Ballard Health Club, Ballard Natural Medicine, Ballard Playspace & Toast. We look forward to growing this to many more locations in Ballard.
We are in need of help in four ways:
- Assemble the IKEA bins in July / early August
- Help plan a Grand Opening event in late August or September, probably at Toast
- Maintain three to five bins in the Ballard area, once per week
- Collect kid-friendly items to fill the bins when they first arrive at their locations
Please contact Barrie if you can help with any of these activities.
