PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP - Owens Community College students are reaching out to those in the surrounding communities with a limited clothing budget by hosting a children's clothing swap event titled "Swap-It-Up" next Tuesday, March 19.
The swap is free and open to the public. It will run from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. in the Audio/Visual Classroom Center rooms 125-128 on the Oregon Road campus.
Attendees are encouraged to bring gently used, folded clothing of all sizes for children, to donate for the community event. Items being accepted are pants, dresses, shoes, skirts, jackets, shorts, short- and long-sleeve shirts, ties and onesies, among other items.
All donated items must be freshly laundered and the clothing swap is not accepting clothing with visible stains, holes, broken zippers and missing buttons. Individuals will be given a ticket voucher for each item donated to the Swap-It-Up. The voucher will allow attendees to choose from the already donated clothing selection.
Any items not claimed during the swap will be donated to Cherry Street Mission Ministries. For more details call 1-800-GO-OWENS, Ext. 2994.
