Details on the swap: Each child will receive 2 tickets at the beginning of the event, and tickets can be used to exchange for toys/books from other families. Each family can decide how many tickets their toys are worth, and any tickets earned can be used to exchange for more toys OR donate to another family. We would like to support families expecting babies, families new to Stanford, families on a single income, and families with multiple children. Your generosity will help us provide tickets to families that are unable to bring toys/books to the event. We will supply extra toys and books so that all families can leave with at least 2 items.


Covid precautions: This event will be outdoors. Masks not required. Please do not come if you have been exposed to covid or have covid-like symptoms (without taking a covid test). We will provide hand sanitizer before dinner and sanitizing wipes for the toy exchange.
