Welcome the spring/summer by getting rid of anything in your house you don't need anymore (clothes, books, kitchen items, "knick-knacks"). Instead of just throwing away your unused items, come to the Teen Peace Project's clothing swap and see what you can exchange! Our hope is community members will come and gather, share stories, and leave with a new "treasure!"
Drinks and snacks will be provided.
