Saturday October 20th, 3pm-6pm

Admission: FREE
Location: Gym of Church 1375 Lockhaven Dr. NE, Keizer OR 97303

CLOTHES ARE EXPENSIVE
We all have those clothes we don’t wear for some reason or another and need to get rid of. Come bring all your unwanted stuff for other mom’s to find good use for. Instead of going out and buying new clothes for your children why not just SWAP clothes with another family?

All remaining unwanted items at end of this event are donated to a charitable foundation helping Mothers in need.

ITEMS TO CONSIDER?
Clothing Newborn-Adult (Clean! Good condition)
Shoes
Toys
Accessories
Maternity items
Jewelry
Jackets
Backpack
HALLOWEEN STUFF

*The day of you will be able to set your items up and we suggest organizing clothes by size.

The whole family is welcome to this event not just Mom’s so feel free to tell friends and family!
PLEASE INVITE PEOPLE!

This is a community type sharing event.  Bring what you no longer use, take what you need. Moms helping moms by trading what we have.  It is first come first pick, but being kind and thoughtful to one another is important.  Nothing should be taken to be sold, only what you can use.  Remembering always we are all there to help each other so being combative and greedy is not tolerated.  For example, say you have already got several items picked out out and an item yu’re wanting is wanted by another mother, be generous and fair in the dealing.  This is not a place to come and take as much as you can, it’s about coming together and sharing as a community of parents who all understand that it’s better to share than go out and buy new stuff.  It’s a chance to clean out your closets and also replenish with usable items!
*If you are unable to make the day but have stuff you want to contribute, please message us and we may be able to arrange a pickup/dropoff for your items.
