Communify will host a Fall Clothing Exchange from 7 to 10 p.m. Nov. 30 at the Foundry, 298 Northampton St.

Communify is asking for clean, new or used clothing in good condition, and attendees are encouraged to bring as much clothing as they’d like. Attendees will hang their clothing on the appropriate racks and then are free to browse. They only ask that everyone leave with the same (or less) amount of clothing than they brought in. All leftover clothing will be donated to Buffalo City Mission.

Second Chic, an Elmwood Village consignment shop, will be on hand to place items on consignment that attendees would like to try to sell.

The event is $5 at the door. The FallyMac Food Truck will be available at the event, and there will be complimentary refreshments. For more information, visit Communify’s Facebook page at


“Being cool is about keeping your blood pressure steady. So no. Don’t be cool. Be passionate. Be dedicated. Be tenacious. Be uncompromising. Be pissed. Be happy. Be sad.”

– Justin Timberlake, who admits he’s “not cool” to GQ magazine
