Offer: 2 Twin mattresses (Los Altos, CA) - I have 2 twin mattresses in excellent condition from a smoke free home. My son outgrew his bunk bed and mattresses have been protected with pad covers.

Offer: Panasonic microwave oven (Valencia Avenue, Sunnyvale) - Panasonic microwave oven with glass plate and ring inside. A neighbor left it out but it most likely works. I can’t hold it. Outside the middle dumpster shed in the parking lot at the right, at the end of Valencia Avenue, off South Mary Avenue in Sunnyvale. Some mattresses are behind it. I will not be home during the day tomorrow to let you in the parking gate but you can get inside by walking between buildings 1045 and 1075 at the end of Valencia Avenue. Offer: Freecycling in the Time of Covid-19 - A few recent posts have prompted me to remind all free cyclers of good practices to follow when giving or receiving items— always good, but especially now. 1. We have never restricted offers of food items, as long as they’re still NEW, in original packaging. No perishables, please. Nothing pharmaceutical or medicinal. 2. All items small enough should be bagged (paper or plastic) and labeled with the recipient’s name. 3. Arrange to leave items on your doorstep or porch or driveway for easy pickup, without contact being necessary. It’s best if the recipient specifies a window of time for their arrival, which means items aren’t sitting on the porch all day, but maybe just for an hour or so. Set this up so it works for both of you. 4. If you’re picking up a bagged item, you may now want to wear disposable rubber gloves. When you get the item home, pull the gloves off in the sink and run hot water on them, then wash them along with washing your hands. Resist the urge to open the bag right away— let it sit— in your garage, in a corner or closet somewhere— for 2-3 days. That way any possible germs are dead. (You might follow this same protocol with delivered groceries that are non-perishable.) 5. Be sure to thank the donor— courtesy and consideration are the hallmarks of a civilized society. And necessary for the ongoing smooth operation of a group like ours. Please don’t add to this list in a post. Apart from number 4, it’s all in the general guidelines that are reiterated each month. If you have suggestions, please send them to <>, not to the whole group. Be safe, be well, be good.
