Waynesboro YMCA to host fun day for kids and used toy sale

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Waynesboro YMCA is hosting its second Black Friday Kidz Day Out and Toy Sale on Nov. 26 starting at 5 a.m.

The used toy sale runs from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the YMCA is accepting gently-used toys starting this week in the Y's lobby.

The toy sale is a great way to "exchange" the toys a child has outgrown for ones more age-appropriate.

Proceeds will benefit the YMCA's child care programs.

The sale also will feature gently-used infant items.

For the Black Friday Kidz Day Out portion, parents will be able to drop off their children before they hit the stores on what's traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year.

Children can play in the gym, swim, do crafts and hang out in the kids zone. Volunteers from various community groups will be on hand to help entertain the children.

The fun day is open to kids ages 3 to 12.

For more information, call the YMCA at 717-762-6012.
