Free Hand-Me-Down Give Away in Downers Grove, IL

Posted on September 30, 2011

Today (9/30/11) and tomorrow (10/1/11) congregation members of the First Baptist Church in Downers Grove, IL are holding their third annual “Hand-me-down Connections” event.  On Thursday the church collected hand-me-down donations of baby, children’s, and adult clothes, as well as toys and household items to give away to community members on Friday and Saturday.  This free event is open to anyone and is a brilliant idea that keeps goods circulating to those who can use them.

To read more about how Hand-me-down Connections came about, check out Nick Vogel’s article, “Hand-me-downs are Downer’s Grove woman’s way to give back,” and Brian Hudson’s follow-up article, “The art of giving.”
