Connecting the community through fashion while also promoting sustainability, a Frock Swap will give residents the chance to trade in their clothes and accessories for some new outfits.

Hosted by Befriend and supported by the Frank Konecny Community Centre, Frock Swap involves donated clothes and accessories swapped or purchased. Those who donate will be given tokens to swap for other items.

Donations are still in demand, and items in good condition can be dropped off at FKCC throughout the week of September 9.

Befriend’s Inger Ward said the swap was about making connections within the community while also promoting recycling. “If you have no items to swap but would still like to attend you are welcome to do that. You may like to purchase items for a small fee after the ‘swappers’ have finished,” she said.

All remaining items will be donated to CREW. The Frock Swap will be held on Saturday, September 14, from 1-3pm at the Frank Konecny Community Centre, corner of Parmelia Avenue and Skottowe Parkway in Parmelia.
