In Search of Some Toys

Hello CP Smith families…

We’ve had a request to try and round up some gently used toys for ages 5-7.  Interactive toys like legos, board games, card games / decks of cards, little cars, books, puzzles…things like that.  Only safe toys please, no weapons!  If you have any you’d like to donate you can leave them at the front desk and tag them for Christine Armstrong.

Thank you!
