In the spirit of giving back to our community, we are going to be participating in a Food Drive for the month of December. Angela is decorating a box to put the food in at swap n play and will be able to store the food as we collect it at her house, and then deliver it to the food bank for us! Please bring in any canned/boxed food between Dec. 5-31st and leave it in the box. The Oregon Food Bank experiences quite a shortage of food after Christmas, so we decided to collect food through the whole month, and drop it off in the beginning of Jan to help their supply. I will be sending another more detailed email about this early this week.

A few quick reminders:
Please remember to turn the heat down and clean-up the toys when you are the last to leave. I know getting out the door can be REALLY hard sometimes!
We are hitting peak sickness time as well. Lots of us have been sick, including my kids! Please take a minute to review the sickness guidelines we have for swap n play to try to keep our kids healthy as the holidays are here!

Lots of great ideas are in the works for events next year.. If there is something you would like to see happen at swap n play, please contact me and we can get it started!

Enjoy your week-
