All Sizes Family Clothing Swap, Sherwood, October 22nd

It only happens twice a year!  Women, Men and Kids… All Sizes…come to the FREE Clothing Exchange at Countryside Community Church, 18810 S.W. Kruger Road, Sherwood, Saturday October 22nd at @ 10:00 am. 

Bring any gently worn clothing items to exchange that you or your loved ones no longer wear. Beginning at 10 a.m. everyone will be released to look through all the clothing (there will be children’s, men’s and women’s categories) and take whatever they would like. All leftover clothing at the end of the hour will be donated to local non-profit organizations to help clothe others in the surrounding communities as well as our own.

This is a great way to share resources with others in our community, especially children’s clothing as children grow in and out of clothing so quickly, and it’s a great way to get some shopping in for yourself without having to spend a penny!  

If you have questions, contact Paula Rummerfield, swap coordinator for the Sherwood location phone weekdays: 503-925-0689.  Swaps at the Countryside Community church usually take place twice a year – spring and fall.
