- What kind of items can be donated/swapped?
o We’re looking for your gently-used/recently-washed clothes, shoes, purses, briefcases, jewellery, etc.
o We’re especially interested in office wear (especially men’s ties, shirts, suits)
- How do I get on the guest list?
o It’s simple, you can RSVP and drop off your clothing/accessory donations by Monday, February 19 at Alumni in B112 and you’ll be added to our guest list
