Spring Swap with Neighbourhood Small Grant

Household items and clothing were the “currency” among families and neighbours in a Delta neighbourhood at a May 4, 2019 Spring Swap. The swap ran from 10 am to 2 pm with no limits on the number of items each person could take home or on the people who were welcome to attend. A Neighbourhood Small Grant from the Delta Foundation, through funding from the Vancouver Foundation, covered hospitality and other expenses.
