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. The first exchange was held April 2013 and now has multiple dates throughout the year. Since the beginning, hundreds of local households have exchanged thousands of articles of clothing and books.
The North Portland Free Clothing Exchange is a community event taking place every odd month 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.
Here are the event dates for 2022. Hours are 2-4 p.m.:
- March 20
- May 15
- July 17
- September 18
- November 20
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. Check the clothing exchange’s website to see what items are needed most.
The event is free and open to everyone.
The North Portland Free Clothing Exchange is held in the loft of the Kenton Church, 2115 N Lombard Street in Portland. For more information, visit the Free Clothing Exchange website.
