It’s that time of year again, to gather up all your useful goods and bring them to Sunnyside Community House Social Hall for our annual swap!

We look forward to this event for the great thing that it is… a place to check in and swap around for fab new-to-you things before going to a store to buy them.

You can sign up right now with the link to become a swap sorter (the best way to see and have first dibs on everything that comes into the swap); volunteers make it happen.

Many of us have been to the swap every year for the past 13 years; I’d love to see you all again. Spread the word to neighbors, family and friends. The more the merrier.

Event info:

  • On Saturday, August 4, doors to the Sunnyside Community House Social Hall (corner of SE 35th and Yamhill) open from 4pm to 8pm take in Community donations: Those jeans that don’t fit anymore, all the clothes your kids have outgrown, a lunch box or backpack with plenty of life left in it, sports gear, art supplies, books, toys, games. Everything should be in good, usable condition.
  • On Sunday, August 5 the donating and swapping continues from 9am-4pm. Everyone who brought in items on Saturday or volunteers their time gets in for free. Everyone who comes on Sunday without volunteering or donating in advance is asked to bring items and pay a $2 per family fee. All fees and monetary donations will be donated to the Community House program that allows people to shower and get a hot meal there.

At the end of the swap, all remaining kids’ clothing items will be donated to the PPS/PTA clothing center. Adult clothing will be left on site for those in need.

Everything is free in the last hour!

We are looking for someone that works or volunteers for a nonprofit that would take away the infant clothing and any other baby items still left at the end of the swap. Let me know if this is you!

Remember to spread the word. Here is the Facebook link, like, share and come to our event.

Hope to see you there!
