EXCHANGE DETAILS

Receiving Clothing: No donation is required to receive clothing. Please take clothing for your own household only, Clothing may not be taken for resale.

Donating Clothing: Do not drop off clothes ahead of time or try to leave them at Kenton Church. Donations will only be accepted during the hours of the exchange. Please sort and hang your own donations. Volunteers are available to help you sort and hang your donations. Place donations on racks by size. Please…no dirty or damaged donations.

The best things about the Free Clothing Exchange: The Discovery! That moment when you find the thing you didn’t know you were looking for and it fits you. You never know what you might find…or what friends you might meet, new and old. Come find yourself something new!

”Thank you! So well organized and I found some professional clothes to wear to my internship – this will be so helpful!” -Aimee F.

BOOK EXCHANGE UPDATE: The book exchange is going strong as well. Each swap, more folks brought and engaged with the book area, and with so many new books for adults coming in, I saw as many grown ups as I did children checking out books. We’d like to get our books more organized. If you have access to 2-3 rolling book racks that will fit on the elevator please let us know through the contact form on our website at https://freeclothingexchange.org/contact-us/.
