COARSEGOLD — Mark your calendar! The 6th Annual Mountain Area Clothing Swap is almost here. Coarsegold 4-H is doing their part as a civic engagement and community service project.
Thursday, Dec. 9, from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. the Coarsegold 4-H is holding their 6th annual mountain area clothing swap at the Coarsegold Community Center.
This is a popular event among our mountain community where folks can donate, exchange, or pick up clothing and shoes for free.
Members and parents have been busy picking up donations and storing them. On December 9th, parents will transport all donations from the storage area to Coarsegold Community Center, then members will fold and put items on the tables so anyone can just come and collect anything needed. No charge!
All are invited and again you do not need to donate clothing to pick up clothing on the event day. Just bring bags to carry the new items to your home!
Feel like donating to fill the need? Some in our mountain community – when getting ready for the holidays, clean up and thin out their closet. They may find clothing in their wardrobe that is too small, they don’t like the style anymore or have an abundance. That is the perfect time to donate and help in the season of giving.
Contact is easy! Just call 646- 209-9142 (Megan), 209-277-9605 (CJ), 559-7993028 (Amanda), and/or 909-204-8118 (Kiki).
For donations please make sure that the clothing are clean. These are going to our own neighbors or friends in the mountain community.
Thank you for your generous donation and cooperation.
