That shirt you have. That one that you can't ever quite seem to toss into your bag of Goodwill donations and can't ever seem to take to the Buffalo Exchange and, most importantly, can't ever seem to actually wear and thereby justify keeping it?
New plan. Take it and its similarly-neglected, hanger-dwelling friends to the Downtown Women's Center Clothing Swap and trade it for something you actually will wear.
This Saturday, June 18th, from 4 to 7 p.m., at the Downtown Women's Center. Entry is $12 at the door (or $10 online). You bring a bag full of clothing. In exchange, you receive an empty bag which you can then refill by "shopping/swapping" for the clothing donations brought by others. If all that wardrobe refreshment leaves you needing some actual refreshment, there will be wine and beer (and, though less-drinkable, a raffle and sweet tunes from a live performance by Rachel Goodrich).
Leftover items and all proceeds will be donated to the DWC to ensure that each day the women of Skid Row are greeted with warm food, a safe community, and supportive services.
