Clothing Swap, May 22

Gentle readers, your MatchGirl knows that many of you found this little tome by doing a little Google search for "clothing swap" and finding some info on one my friends held at Union Pool a while back.  While there are a lot of other sites that post this kind of information more frequently (Brokelyn, theskint), I am happy to pass it along when things come my way.

And, as this one's leftover clothes will go to the same charity as the one my friends organized, it seemed a nice fit (though, you'll have to leave Greenpoint!)

From Michael:
Clean out your closet, find new threads from your neighbor's closet, and keep clothes out of landfills! Bring your clean and usable women’s, men’s, and children’s clothing to contribute.
Because reduce/reuse/recycle is *always* in fashion.

Clothes left over from the swap will go to the wonderful programs at Housing Works, which provide the highest quality services for homeless men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS in New York City and beyond.

Brought to you by Greener Gotham Events, founded by Green Party activists to create fun and social eco-events in the Five Boroughs!

We'll be at All Saints Catholic Church, located at 115 Throop Ave (basement entrance) at the corner of Thorton Street. Take the G and J/M trains to Flushing Avenue -- or the L train to Montrose Avenue.

FREE with a contribution of clean, usable clothes to the swap. Email or call 347-788-1646.

Unfortunately, dear readers, your MatchGirl has quadruple booked herself for next Saturday (her head spins just thinking about the hectic day!), but you should definitely go, take some clothes that you're sick of and go home with a bunch of new-to-you finds!
