Do you have a lot of things around your home that you don’t use and want to get rid of? How about some clothes that don’t fit or a book you’ll never read? Looking for something or know someone else who needs something?
Come by our Fifth Annual Holiday Swap and Shop (aka Holiday Free Sale) at the Unitarian Church of Marlborough and Hudson, where you can give, take, or give and take for free! Bring something you don’t need and take something you do!
The Goal is to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle: Reduce the amount of unwanted stuff that gets thrown away and ends up in landfills by trading/sharing with another family who will Reuse, Recycle and give it a new home. Likewise, the hope is to reduce the amount of money spent and instead provide these items for other families, especially those who may not otherwise have the resources!
