FREECYCLE!

In preparation for our next Freecycle event at Edgewood Fun Night, please bring your gently used clothing, shoes, and coats to the bin in front of the Main office. We’ll be accepting (and washing) donations to be shared at Fun Night, so we’re getting a jump on the work now.
Everyone is encouraged to shop and swap for FREE!

We are looking for folks to help wash clothes and facilitate the Freecycle event. Please contact Julia McMorran for more information or to volunteer.

BOOKCYCLE!
