Happy New Year, Fellow Friendly Exchangers!
I am finding myself irrationally optimistic about 2019. Why? Much of my optimism is fueled by all the ways this community cared for each other last year.
In 2018, we shared our clothing and reading resources with over 235 other exchangers.
Together we received, sorted, distributed and recycled thousands and thousands of articles of clothing.
We continued distributing socks and providing a light lunch during events to any exchangers who come hungry.
We added a book exchange and were delighted to see so many children (and adults) take home armloads of books they can call their very own.
We also grew from four exchanges a year to six - providing us with more opportunities to grab some new garments, don some new digs or even tear into a new tome.
Thank you all for the role you played in making 2018 another great year in the life of your Free Clothing Exchange!
And we're starting 2019 off with a boost of new-to-us clothes and books generously heaped upon us from the folks at Mosaic Church (see the photo above). We’ll be doing our best to sort through this generous mountain of clothes and get them into rotation for the upcoming exchanges. Speaking of sorting clothes…
NEW OPPORTUNITIES TO HELP OUT
We have been so blessed by how willing our fellow exchangers are to lend a hand during our events.
Starting FEB 10th, we are going to start meeting on the 2nd Sunday's of our off months from 2-4pm to sort, organize and plan.
If you'd like to get more involved with our zany, caring community these "sorting parties" are the place to be.
Email us, if you'd like to help out.
