Hi everyone,
We are currently in need of early childhood (age2-5) toy donations. In particular, we could really use a rug similar to the one below, as well as puzzles, anything peppa pig, paw patrol, frozen etc.

If you are spring cleaning and would like to donate, please message us or feel free to drop off at the park anytime m-f between 12 and 5pm. Thanks!
