Dump and Run Ithaca Update 6/30/2021
We are busy sorting and getting the items ready for sale for Dump and Run Ithaca, 2021. We have limited space in the old DSW Shoe Warehouse Store front at the Ithaca Mall. Because of this, we have decided to hold the children's clothing back until the second weekend of the sale, as we have more children's clothing than ever and have many nice things, but do not have the space to display it all. We will have toys and games for the first weekend sale, but not children's clothing. We apologize for any inconvience this may cause, but know that we have never had this amount of children's clothing and we want it to be displayed in the best light possible. We are looking for our August sales and will get the dates out as soon as we nail down the dates and times.

SHOPPING LOCAL: 2020 has brought many changes. Cops, Kids and Toys is making a significant change and began shopping for gifts for the children of Tompkins County, NY locally in May. We have been working with shops like Alphabet Soup, Cat's Pajamas, and Sunny Days in Ithaca, as well as Klein's Archery in Dryden to get ready for the holiday season of 2020. We have also done shopping at Walpole's Variety in Groton, and have reached out to other local businesses and will be updating the stores we are working with as they become available. Please contact us with ideas that you have for local shops in Tompkins County that would be places where we can shop for the children infant through 18 that we serve. Update 5/23/2020: Avital's Apiaries, Ithaca will be working with us to enable us to give the older girls locally made bath and body products. 5/29/2020: We will be shopping at Sundrees, in Trumansburg. 6/5/2020 We are excited to have the Brain Shoppe, Ithaca partnering with us. 6/8/2020 We are thrilled to be partnering with Jillian's Drawers, Ithaca. 7/11/2020 We shopped at Sundrees in Trumansburg and are excited about the gifts we purchased there. 8/26/2020Instant Replay Sports in Ithaca has helped us to get sports balls for the children that apply.
We have been asked how people can help with our shopping local movement for our holiday toys. One way is to make purchases from the shops that we have purchased from and donate them to us. Remember we serve children infant to 18 in Tompkins County, NY. Another way is by sending us a donation to: Cops, Kids and Toys, 836 Hanshaw Rd, Ithaca, NY 14850. We truly appreciate the support that we have received from our decision to buy local.
It is with deep sadness that we inform our community that George Sutfin, a founding member of Cops, Kids and Toys, passed away suddenly this week. Our deepest condolences go out to Sandy and their family. He will be missed and we have big shoes to fill, and will always remember his focus on the children of Tompkins County. His obituary can be found here.
