Join Us for the Eco-Faith Stuff Exchange
Everyone on-campus during the first January RFS (January 9–13) is invited to participate in the Eco-Faith Team’s Stuff Exchange.
On Tuesday, January 10, make sure to attend chapel at 11 a.m. to listen to Dr. Padgett preach on an eco-faith theme and join us for a reception afterwards with hot drinks and baked goods. Let’s celebrate the abundance of community together!
All week, tables will be set-up in the “triangle area” in the upper part of OCC, across from the Cafe. Everyone is invited to participate in the Stuff Exchange: simply bring gently used items to contribute if you have them and take home items that you would use. It will be our own thrift shop–exchanging to prevent unnecessary purchases and waste. Distributed Learning students: pack something to exchange if you have room! Bags to carry items home will be provided.
Items may include: clothing, books, small appliances, picture frames, video games, instruments—whatever! Please make sure items are clean (please wash before bringing clothes) and usable. Please no swimwear or undergarments. Leftover items will be donated Friday night after the RFS.
