This weekend during the Subaru Arctic Blast at Greensgrow Farms, we are partnering with a project called Instant RePlay to host collections of gently used toys and games. Instant RePlay works with Philadelphia family-support organizations to get donations directly into the hands of kids in need. More than 125,000 children in Philadelphia live in poverty, and simply toys and games provide a host of critical developmental and life skills. The Greensgrow collection will support kids and families affiliated with APM (Asociacion Puertorriquenos en Marcha for Everyone). Types of toys that ARE accepted: gently used/new toys and games for 4-10 year olds; balls, baseball gloves, blocks, Legos/building materials, jump ropes, Frisbees, puzzles, board games, fake food/store items, musical instruments, action figures, toy cars, kids’ books. Types of toys that ARE NOT accepted; newborn/infant materials, anything requiring batteries, replacement parts, sports equipment (besides balls, baseball gloves) plush animals, broken toys, incomplete sets/puzzles/kits/games, play houses/castles activity books that have been written in, toy weapons.
