Volunteer needed to deliver remainders after Women’s Clothing Swap May 12th

Hi swappers!  We need a person with a big heart and a vehicle who can transport the clothing remainders from the women’s clothing swap Saturday May 12th from the Evergreen Church in NE Portland, to a housing project in NW Portland after the swap.  You’d play an important part in sharing the fun of free swaps with people who could really use the uplift!  If you can help after tomorrow’s swap, please tell Anna the swap hostess at the swap, or you can contact her in advance at addragazelle@gmail.com

Thanks for helping to bring the fun of treasure-hunting to make a positive difference for families in our community!
