D.H. White Elementary on Saturday August 31. Children’s Clothing Exchange —

School has already started!  As you prepare your kid’s clothes for the coming school year, you’re sure to find many nice items that are just too small for them to wear. You can bring them to the Children’s Clothing Exchange Saturday, August 31 at Tapella Auditorium, D. H. White Elementary School, 500 Elm Way, Rio Vista, CA.  This is your opportunity to trade your child’s good condition (but outgrown) clothes for clothing in the correct size.  All season clothes are exchanged so you can stock up on just what you need.

To participate, bring clean, good condition children’s clothing (sizes from newborn to teens, no adult clothing please).  No money is exchanged.  You receive credits for the number of items you donate and can exchange them for clothing of the correct size.   Grandparents, family members and friends are all welcome.

To avoid standing in line at the door, call 707-374-2667 to arrange early drop-off so your clothes can be counted early and you’ll receive your credits at the door.  If you don’t have clothes to exchange, you may trade canned goods for clothing items.  Canned fruit, vegetables, soups, canned meats or fish are preferred (no glass jars please).  Donated food will benefit Rio Vista Food Pantry.  If you don’t need to trade but have clothes to donate, please call St. Brigid’s Episcopal Church at 707-374-2667 to arrange drop-off or bring them on the day of the event.
