Update your wardrobe at this free community clothing exchange.
The North Portland Free Clothing Exchange was started by a group of friends who were looking for a way to pass along gently used clothing, especially for their kids who outgrew clothes quickly.
The clothing exchange is built on the concept of neighbors sharing with neighbors. Now the exchange has multiple dates throughout the year. Since the beginning, hundreds of local households have exchanged thousands of articles of clothing and books.
Here’s how you can participate in an upcoming event.
North Portland Free Clothing Exchange
The clothing exchange is a community event on every third Sunday on odd months at the Kenton Church on North Lombard Street.
You’ll find men’s, women’s and children’s clothing. The exchange has also expanded into books for all ages.
The next free clothing exchange is Sunday, January 21 from 2 to 4 p.m.
Donations are not required to receive clothing or books. If you want to make a donation, bring items with you to one of the upcoming events. Also, check the clothing exchange’s website to see what items are needed most.
