Annual Clothing Exchange & Toy Giveaway
The clothing exchange is a time to get rid of those clothes that no one in your house is wearing and to share the clothes with others. This year we are adding an exchange of “mostly new” toys that can bless children for Christmas. It’s all happening here on October 13 & 14, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. The giveaway is on October 15 from 9:00 a.m. to Noon for the community to share in our abundance. Details for participating are on The City > Calendar > October 13 or contact Courtney Shipe (email@example.com). Information cards are available on the foyer table to hand out at Purcellville’s Town Tag Sale on October 8.
