Edina, Minn., July 26, 2023 – Kids clothes, shoppers and volunteers are sought for the inaugural Back to School Clothing Swap Saturday, Aug. 19.
Clean and reusable clothes for children in kindergarten through 12th grade will be exchanged at the swap, which will run 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Edina Senior Center, 5280 Grandview Square.
People who have kids’ clothes to contribute can drop them off at the Senior Center between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 18 or bring them to the swap. Undergarments, socks and swimsuits can’t be accepted. Please no toys or sports gear.
The swap event is free. Participants do not need to be Edina residents or donate items in order to swap. Children are welcome when accompanied by an adult. Please bring your own reusable bag for shopping as this is a zero-waste event.
