The Cause

Agawam Zero Waste Club, the Agawam Rotary Club, Agawam High School National Honor Society and Agawam High School SAVE Club have partnered to collect toys for the 5th Annual Holiday Used Toy Exchange. This volunteer team has modified the annual event to comply with COVID-19 health guidelines.

Donors will send individual pictures of each of their gently used, clean, working toys by email to AgawamZeroWaste@gmail.com until Sunday, November 1, 2020. Please include your name and telephone number in the e-mail. Toys will be collected by appointment only at the Agawam Public Library parking lot (located at 750 Cooper Street, Agawam, MA 01001) on Saturday, November 21, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Donors will remain in their cars for this drive-thru event.

Gently used toys wanted include musical instruments, action figures, dolls, sports equipment, books, bicycles, electronics, video games, DVDs, stuffed animals, model kits, art supplies, building toys, creative learning toys & structures, games, puzzles and baby toys. Donated toys must be clean, working and have all parts.

General public free shopping will be on-line from Wednesday, November 4, 2020 through Tuesday, November 10, 2020. Participants will be entered into a lottery after selecting their favorite toys virtually. The specific website and shopping format information will be made available at a future date. Toys will be distributed by appointment only on Saturday, December 5, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. in the Agawam Public Library parking lot located at 750 Cooper Street, Agawam, MA 01001.
