The Women’s Clothing Exchange at Germantown Jewish Centre is both an annual community and charitable event and a giant bazaar featuring all kinds of women’s clothing and accessories. This year it will take place on Sunday, Feb. 2 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Marcus Auditorium of the center at 400 W. Ellet St. in Mt. Airy.
Every year, women in the community are asked to donate any clothing and accessories that are in good condition, but which they no longer use. These donations are collected at GJC the week before the event. This year, that will be Jan. 27-31.
Women from all over the city pay $20 to “shop” for shoes, sweaters, coats, and other personal items. The atmosphere is festive, with music and a private place for trying on clothes. This year, the proceeds will be used by GJC to support its work with POWER, an interfaith organization committed to implementing systemic change for the betterment of PA communities.
All the leftover items following the event are donated to Whosoever Gospel Mission in Germantown. For more information, contact Genie Ravital: firstname.lastname@example.org
