PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ITEMS AT CHURCH

I've mentioned in the past that we need to avoid leaving Trading Post items in the church, but as I look back I realize it's been a few years (here and here, both in 2010). I've had a handful of people write to me over the last several months to say that they've been asked to leave items at the church, so I figured it was time for a reminder that the Trading Post doesn't work that way. I have no idea who has asked for items to be left, so this is a general reminder to everyone.

I realize that it can be tricky to coordinate with people who go to a different service than you, but please do not leave Trading Post items in the church building for other people to pick up at another service. If you leave something for someone attending the same service you're at, perhaps near your child's class, then please be sure to check to make sure it was picked up before you leave.

I know many people like to use the lost & found cabinet for transactions, but that's not what it's there for. When I first brought this issue up we were still at the school and there was no designated lost & found. I offered to get the lost & found under control right about the time we moved to the warehouse, managed it for 18 months or so, then handed it off to someone else right before our youngest child was born. The staff eventually took it over and I'm not sure what their strategy is for managing it, but I know it would have created unnecessary work for me to have Trading Post items in there when I was taking care of it. If they keep track of what's in there and how long it's been there before passing it on, then Trading Post items are creating more work. If they just clear it out for donations randomly, then Trading Post items aren't creating more work, but they may get purged. If the recipient forgets to pick up the item and you never touch base with them or check to make sure it got picked up, then it's just taking up space that's intended for another purpose.

So, as I said in those older posts, let's make sure that the Trading Post remains a blessing for everyone and not leave a trail of stuff in the building. Thanks for your cooperation!
