A collection will be held for the local food bank. Bring boxed and canned goods, or bring meat and vegetables and Truely Unique has a freezer to keep them fresh for the food bank to pick up.

Bring clean clothes or shoes that are not needed anymore and place them on our clothing-exchange tables. You can go through the clothes and take what you need; then, all clothes and shoes remaining will be given to a local battered women’s shelter (Clothe Line) and the Salvation Army.  There will be one table set out for children and one table for adults.

Bring your lawn chairs, and your appetite and join the fun on this family-oriented day!
