A new way to give away – or get – free stuff is coming to Burien’s Three – or ‘FREE‘ – Tree Point neighborhood the weekend of July 8 & 9, 2023 – an inaugural “Giveaway Day” event.

The Plan:

  • On Saturday, July 8 and Sunday, July 9, 2023, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., residents of Three Tree Point who live on SW 172nd Street, SW 171st Street, Three Tree Point Lane and Maplewild Ave SW are encouraged to set out things they don’t need anymore outside their homes/driveways.
  • We strongly suggest adding a “FREE STUFF” sign to indicate that stuff is free and up for grabs.
  • Once stuff is out and labeled, it’s up for grabs in a kind of free neighborhood giveaway event – just drive/stroll through the area and take what you like!
  • There will be no “holds” allowed on items – everything is up to you to haul and you cannot knock on doors or bother homeowners. It’s first come, first served!
  • There is no main organizer to this event, and we strongly encourage participants to treat it as an experiment to see if it works.
  • Remember – put out some good stuff you don’t need, not junk or garbage, and let’s turn this neighborhood into FREE Tree Point!
  • AND…at the end of the day (4 p.m.-ish), whatever is left out should be rightfully taken back in by its owners and stored away until the next event.

  1. I love this idea and hope it catches on. I wonder what the plan is for items that are not taken at the end of the day.
