The Swap is open to anyone who needs educational supplies, including teachers, parents, homeschooling families, youth programs, and daycare providers. Visit the Swap to browse what’s available and take what you need. Our inventory is donation-based, so it fluctuates based on what we receive. CLICK HERE to see the types of supplies that are available.

The Swap is closed on Code Red days in Baltimore City and during winter inclement weather; check our Facebook page to see if we’re closed when the weather is questionable.
