Clothes swap

Clothing swap to benefit women’s shelter

Kindness never goes out of fashion, says Ashley Doung, a student of family and social relations, so she and the executives of WE Charity have organized a Clothing Swap that will allow students to exchange or donate items they no longer love.

“As spring is right around the corner, what better way to do a little early spring cleaning and add some new pieces to your closet?” Doung asks.

Participants bring gently used clothes they no longer wear and leave with items that better fit their needs, she says.

The event is set for Thursday, March 1, in the Rose Room, Vanier Hall. Doung asks that swappers drop off their goods at 11:30 a.m. The swap will run from noon to 4 p.m.

Leftover clothing will be donated to the Welcome Centre Shelter for Women, along with any donated feminine hygiene products, toiletries, and canned goods.
