Entrance is free for those with “swap tickets” or clothing to donate. Otherwise there is a $2.00 (two dollars) cash entrance fee. This is a swap and cash only event.
For every two (2) items of clothing and/or accessories donated, donors will receive one (1) “swap” ticket to exchange for one (1) item of their choice at the G2T1 event on Saturday, April 17th. Acceptable donations include clothing, jewelry, shoes and other accessories such as hats, scarves, gloves, belt, and handbags. Please make sure all items are clean and in excellent condition. Undergarments, children’s clothing, or any items with signs of damage and stains cannot be accepted.
In addition to the swap, all clothing and accessories already donated are priced to sell. This is a cash only event. All remaining clothing and accessories will go to the St. Vincent de Paul Society for their various community programs that help to feed, clothe, and shelter more than 75,000 individuals per year. Receipts for tax-deductible donations are available at the G2T1 event as well as the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
