04/28/18 All Age All Gender Clothing Exchange — At Countryside Community Church, 18810 S.W. Kruger Road, Sherwood. Countryside Community Church will be hosting a FREE Clothing Exchange on Saturday, April 28 @ 10:00 am to 11:00 am. Doors open at 9:45. 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. 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!
