So, what is this unbelievably great idea?
The LMS 1st Annual Clothing Swap!
We are asking families to bring in their gently worn, used clothing from now until next week. Saturday, May 4th from 8:30am-12:30pm is the swap.
My Kindness Project Lunch Bunch kids will help sort and weed out clothing prior to the event and we have made announcements to recruit student volunteers to help on Saturday with running the swap. Our philosophy is simply: "Give what you can. Take what you need." If you have nothing to donate, well maybe you still find a nice pair of shorts or jeans that you can use and will look great on you.
To promote the event, we sent a letter home to parents explaining the swap. We listed acceptable and unacceptable items. This is what we have defined as acceptable and unacceptable clothing:
Items Not Accepted:þ Winter Clothingþ Socksþ Under Wearþ Clothing With Stains or Holesþ Hair Accessories or Hatsþ School Suppliesþ Household AppliancesAcceptable Items:þ Shortsþ Shirtsþ Spring Jacketsþ Pantsþ Sneakers/Cleats
