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 includes school supplies, arts and crafts materials, manipulatives, curriculum supplements, classroom decorations, and more. Our inventory is donation-based, so it fluctuates based on what we receive.

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.
