Family Clothing Swap- all Ages and Sizes, Sherwood, April 28th

Bring the whole family to Sherwood for a HUGE Clothing Exchange that only takes place twice a year!

What: Men, Women, Children FREE All Size Clothing Swap!

Where: Countryside Community Church, 18810 S.W. Kruger Road, Sherwood

When: Saturday, April 28 @ 10:00 am  (Doors open at 9:45am)

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 rummage through all the clothing (there will be children’s, men’s and women’s categories) and take whatever they would like to use personally or give as gifts!

All of the 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 any questions, phone weekdays 503-925-0689. Countryside Community Church, 18810 S.W. Kruger Road in Sherwood Oregon.
