Volunteers needed for clothes swap

NANAIMO – Participants encouraged to bring bag of clothing.

Swap-O-Rama-Rama needs some additional volunteers to assist with clothes sorting and organizing, door and admission, set-up and clean-up.

Shifts are set up so volunteers will still have plenty of time to enjoy the swap.

Swap-O-Rama-Rama is a not-for-profit clothing swap combined with ‘creation stations’ staffed by local artists and makers, where swap participants can learn skills to modify, alter or embellish their ‘new’ clothes.

Swap-O-Rama-Rama takes place Saturday (Oct. 1), 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at St. Andrew’s United Church, located at 311 Fitzwilliam St.

Admission is free. Please bring a bag of clean, used clothing.

If you would like to volunteer please fill out the form at http://swap-o-nanaimo.ca/volunteer/
