Spring cleaning (and shopping) the green way
It's spring time to clean out closets and ready your wardrobe for warmer weather. Clothes swaps are the best way to do both and feel good about it. Here's a big one this weekend:
Spring Clothing Swap and Book Drive: Swap-O-Rama-Rama Returns to Astoria
Saturday, March 21, 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.
A.R.R.O.W. Community Center, 35-30 35th Street in Astoria
Directions: N/W to 36th Avenue or R to Steinway
You bring clothes, other people bring clothes ... and then you swap. It's that easy. Remaining items will be donated to Hour Children thrift store.And it's also a book drive: Gently used or new books will be donated to the Queens Library. Local branch libraries will have first dibs.
This event is sponsored by Triple R Events: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, the Astoria Book Club and the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation. RSVPs appreciated but not required: *firstname.lastname@example.org* or call (646) 202-0825.
