Playdate With A Purpose August 2012: Clothing Exchange

Recap: Clothing Exchange, August 2012 

Thank you to the families who supported our second Playdate with a Purpose, benefiting the ALPHA Pregnancy Support Center in SLO.
We had a great turnout at Meadow Park on Friday, August 24 with an impressive clothing exchange. I overheard many moms talking, and we agreed: it was great to clean out our closets, get some new clothes, and benefit a worthy charity! We were able to partner with the Birth and Baby Resource Network for their annual community service project, and donate all of the remaining baby items to ALPHA.

Special thanks to Jennifer Stover, president of BBRN, for dropping off the items. She reported, "I took [the donations] in yesterday and they were thrilled... The nice ladies at Alpha told me this is a time of year they are usually running low on items... They said they had begun to run low on baby things but are now completely restocked."

We are considering making this a regular (annual? bi-annual?) event... what are your thoughts?
