The GFWC Pasco Junior Woman’s Club will host a free clothing swap on Feb. 20 at 6:30 p.m., at the Land O’ Lakes Library, 2818 Collier Parkway, in the front activity room.
The event began in 2018 and has become a standing activity in the community.
The swap gives individuals an opportunity to go through their closets and purge items that are still in great shape, but no longer wanted. Participants bring their clothes to the event and can look through the donations brought in by others to take something ‘new to you’ home. No money is exchanged.
Clothes and shoes of all shapes and sizes can be donated. Used socks and underwear will not be accepted.
All items left behind will be distributed to local charities such as Sunrise of Pasco, the Cinderella Project, local homeless support charities, and Title 1 schools.
Most needed items are formal wear for high school proms, winter wear of all sizes, and throw blankets.
In 2023, the Pasco Juniors hosted three swaps and collected more than 2,000 pieces of clothing, as well as shoes and other household items.
