All Size/All Gender Adult Clothing Swap, SE Portland, Fridays until it rains/is too cold and dark

The Friday outdoor clothing swap was a huge success! Thanks to all who came, & for our mighty lil sharing community!😊🧡

Swap hosts Shay and Alexandra are expanding the outdoor free Clothing Swap to include All Sizes/Gendersevery Friday at the NW corner of Woodstock park,  starting at 7pm until it starts raining and/or gets cold and dark. (Details below)

This is a free event, and we ask that you bring clothing items that are clean and in good condition, and read/follow the important instructions below.

When:   7pm Fridays until it’s cold, rainy, or dark. Check the facebook page before coming to make sure the swap is on.

Where:  Outside at Woodstock Park at the corner of 47th and Steele Street https://www.portland.gov/parks/woodstock-park

What:  All Size/All Gender Clothing Swap for adults who are kind and considerate!

Important instructions:

All attending must not have a fever, cough, or other covid symptoms.

Masks are required to be worn at all times during the swap.

If you have children they must stay with you at all times.

Please bring a blanket/towel to put your things on in the park in rows,  spacing your blanket/towel at least 10 feet away from other blankets/towels to allow social distancing between.

Bring CLEAN Women’s and Men’s clothing.

Be generous.  Be kind.  Only take what you will personally use or give as gifts.  If two people want the same item and can’t work it out, the person with less items gets it.

When you leave, please take the remainders on your towel/blanket home with you. (Unless you personally talk with Shay or Alexandra at the swap, and bring your items to the volunteer’s car so they can transport to a nonprofit)

 

Many people are going through a big purge right now so this is a fun way to social-distance, as well as give/receive free clothes!   If you’d like to be backup for taking remainders, please contact Shay,  admin on the facebook group SE PDX XS-M Women’s Clothing Swap.

Donate Clean, In Good Condition Clothing!

If you’ve been spending time at home cleaning out your closets, you can donate your freshly washed, in great condition clothes to help neighborhood families!  Kenton Church has offered to wash and deliver emergency clothing during this Covid-19 pandemic.  I emailed and asked if we free swappers could provide clothes to help. Here’s Zack from The All Size Family Clothing Swap at the Kenton Church with the details:

Hope this finds you well and staying healthy.
Thanks so much for thinking of us. We have already received a few emergency clothing requests that we are working now to fulfill as best we can.
As far as clothing donations go…at this time our core volunteer and all-around superstar Emma Taniguchi is processing and arranging donation logistics to help gift emergency clothing to people.
If you would like to DONATE emergency clothing please let us know what you have to donate through the request form through our website here. We ask that all clothes be in good ready-to-wear shape and thoroughly washed and clean before being donated.
Emma will store and quarantine new donations until we can safely get them into circulation.
Thanks again! We’ll look for any donation emails to come in from the form on our website. Please do not drop off clothes unless it has been pre-arranged through Emma.*
