The Toy Swap

Each December Life Bible Church hosts a Toy Swap for the Holly Springs community.  Families donate their gently-used or new toys & books. Volunteers then organize those items. Lastly, the community is invited to shop for FREE!

Some families shop to help supplement their Christmas shopping while for others, the Toy Swap provides the only Christmas they will have. Our volunteers delight in wrapping  your "new" toys so moms, dads, and other caregivers can put them right under the tree! Merry Christmas!

Doors open promptly at 10 am on December 11th. Feel free to come early and enjoy coffee/tea while you wait for the fun to begin! Our address is 124 P. Rickman Industrial Drive, Holly Springs, Georgia.

We look forward to seeing you at the Toy Swap!
This event is FREE (no catch, we promise).

Sign-up for our emails to stay in the loop on when our next Toy & Clothing Swaps will be held.

Volunteering

It takes many hands to sort, organize and display the hundreds of toys and books we receive for the Swap. Would you consider volunteering to help us make Christmas brighter for Holly Springs' families?

We are offering all of our Toy Swap volunteers the opportunity to shop early the day of the Swap. Here's how it works:

  1.  Sign up here to volunteer. 
  2. For each shift you volunteer, you will get to shop early for THREE items.
  3. Volunteers will get to shop early the morning of the Toy Swap, Saturday, December 11th at 9:30 am.
  4. Once you have picked out your three items for each shift worked, you will take the toys to your car and can rejoin other shoppers in the lobby. Doors will open for everyone at 10 am!

FAQ's

Below are some questions and answers that may help you plan for this event.

Q: How does a Toy Swap event work?

A: Before the event toys and books are sorted and placed on marked tables. During the swap you are welcome to browse the tables and take whatever you can use for your family. There is no charge for anything! We will have gift wrapping stations open where we will wrap your gifts so they are ready for Christmas morning.

Q: What kind of items can I bring?

A: During this swap, we are accepting gently-used or new toys and children's books.

Q: Am I allowed to sell things that I get from this swap?

A: NO. We provide this community event in order to bless one another by sharing what we have. We ask that items taken are not sold. Please do not take items your family will not use. All remaining items will be used to fund future swap events, or donated to a local charity.

Q: May I come even though I do not attend your church?

A: YES! We encourage everyone in the community who would like to come and participate. Feel free to bring friends, the more the merrier!

A: No. We would love to have you come join us for the fun, even if you do not have any items to contribute. There is no counting of items during drop off or before you leave. (We only ask "Number of Items" on the registration so that we can prepare an appropriate number of tables.)

Q: Do I need to drop things off before the event?

A: YES! We provide early drop off times during the week prior to our event. Please sign up on the form above to let us know when you plan to come.

Q: I may need to bring my children, is that ok?

A: In our church, we believe that family comes first, so children are always welcome. However, we do ask that parents keep their children with them at all times.
