Our closets are overflowing with awesome clothes that we never wear, accessories bought on a whim, shoes that have only been worn once (or sometimes twice), so much feminist swag, and all this has much more life left.
Let’s put those items to use, be green, save some green, and give some green! We're
raising money for Women Have Options - Ohio, helping patients across Ohio since 1992 control their reproductive choices regardless of financial barriers! The money raised fills a vital health care gap by helping to pay for abortion services, contraception, emergency contraception, options counseling, and transportation costs to clinics.
How it works:
Entry is $10.
Tickets available online at http://www.womenhaveoptions.org/clothing_swap and at the door.
Empty your closets of unwanted items that are gently, barely or never used (clothes, dressy scarves, outerwear, shoes, costume jewelry, sunglasses, purses, etc.) and bring them to St Stephen's Episcopal Church on March 9 between 4:30-8pm to get your “golden ticket” that allows you to take unlimited items at the swap the next day.
A massive amount of clothing will be available during the exchange and volunteers will arrange it into our fabulous Swap for Solidarity boutique. The swap is from 11am-6pm on Saturday: come at any time and stay as long as you wish. It should be a fun party the whole time!
If you bring clothes on the days of the exchange, you may take as many items as you brought, in addition to the complimentary 10 items with your ticket. Additional items $1.
Dressing rooms will be available to try things on.
At the end of the swap leftover items will be donated to various community groups including those serving teens in need and LGBTQ youth, also rural career closets, prom programs, refugee and immigrant groups, domestic violence shelters and the Volunteers of America Thrift Store. If your group would like to partner with us and leftover donated items please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The full, fluid and beautiful range of gender presentations are welcome at this swap! We work hard to make sure that everyone is comfortable attending and participating as who they are. All adult clothing is welcome and available!
Drop-off: FRIDAY March 9, 2018, 4:30-8p
The Swap: SATURDAY March 10, 2018, 11a-6p
Some common courtesy notes: Items should be clean and in good condition, without holes, rips, or stains. If you don’t think others would want it please don’t bring it. Fun/ bizarre items encouraged! You may bring adult clothing, shoes, accessories (purses, scarves, etc.) Bring feminist swag and flair to find a new home. Please, no children’s clothing. If you have any long items, like dresses & coats, please bring them on hangers.
ATTN: PARENTS (& all the many wonderful labels of those who care for young folks)! We believe you deserve to swap too and so we will be offering complimentary childcare this year! Please let us know how many little ones you're bringing by emailing email@example.com with the SUBJECT: Swap Childcare. We will be sending an email back to confirm ages and other important info.
