During the The Little Exchange Annual Meeting on August 31, 2011, Board President Nancy Rambasek presented a check for $12,000 to The Children’s Medical Center of Dayton for continuing support of the Family Resource Center at the hospital.  Susan Brockman, Patient-Family Communications Manager, and Jill Lewis, Development Associate, Annual Gifts, graciously accepted the donation.  Along with the check, 12 wagons were donated by the volunteers of the Little Exchange to help with transporting patients around the medical center. 

  Construction is underway for the new location of the Family Resource Center, which will be located just off the main lobby.   The Resource Center provides kits on controlling allergens, bicycle safety, car seat safety, etc., along with instructional books and DVD’s on all types of health conditions. In addition to providing information on health and safety issues, the Family Resource Center will also be partnering with Legal Aid to provide a lawyer one day per week to consult patients’ families on financial and legal issues.   The center also loans books and DVD’s to schools and health departments. 

  The Little Exchange is celebrating its 60th year and since its inception has donated over $1,400,000 to Dayton Children’s.  The Little Exchange is a non-profit fine gift shop located at 45 Park Avenue in Oakwood.  Over 100 volunteers assist in the store each month, cashiering and wrapping gifts.   The Little Exchange stocks exquisite baby and children’s clothing, unique wedding gifts, one of a kind home décor, gourmet kitchen items, jewelry and other unusual gifts.  The Little Exchange is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., Thursday 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
