LKFS Clothing Swap Benefit!

Clean out your closets and attics and join us for a clothing swap to benefit the Little Kitchen Food Shelf!

Bring your clean & gently used clothing and accessories (shoes, purses, jewelry, etc). We’ll have labeled tables so you can sort your items by size. Then check out what others have brought! We’ll have some changing spaces available if you want to try things on.

Take home anything that works for you. Whatever isn’t claimed will be donated to the Little Kitchen Food Shelf garage sale on Friday and Saturday. This garage sale benefits our no-restrictions no-boundaries food shelf serving up to 800 households per month.

Building a Box City: Interactive All-Ages Community Art

We’ll have art and craft supplies of every kind and tons of cardboard — the rest is up to you! What does a city need? Skyscrapers, houses, a library, a school? How about a waterpark or a zoo or even a dinosaur exhibit? Maybe your kids want to grow up to be firefighters, or animal doctors, or archeologists…. so let’s build a fire station, a vet clinic, and a big box of dirt to dig in. Grab a shoebox (provided) and let’s build an amazing city together!  Sunday, May 21, 12 PM – 5 PM.
