We did our first sorting and baby feeding on Friday, May 6. The show looks great! The students sorted with much enthusiasm, fueled by a pizza lunch, and we went through several large bags of discarded toys. Those that were clean, in good condition, and not missing parts were put into the donation section. Anything marked with a recycle symbol was put into the recycling section. Electronic toys were separated and several students tackled them with screwdrivers to remove the electronic parts and batteries. All other toys were put into the “baby food” section and were tossed into the trap door on the back of the baby’s head. We filled about 1/5 of the baby’s torso. Interestingly, the recycle section ended up with the fewest amount of toys. In fact, mostly packaging went in there.
Next feeding will be during the reception on Tuesday, May 10, 3-5pm.
