Closets Collide promotes sustainability in fashion and retail in the Ames community by hosting a clothing swap on October 23rd, 2010. Ames and Iowa State community members can swap clean, unwanted clothing with other community members. Participants are encouraged to bring their clothing to the drop off days held October 18th through the 22nd from 11 am - 1 pm in the Memorial Union. A ticket will be given for each item of clothing donated (limit 10 tickets; no limit on clothing). At the event on October 23rd, participants can exchange their tickets for new clothing or accessory items. There will be fun, interactive workshops, and an opportunity for participants to donate unused tickets to flood victims. Any unswapped clothing will be donated to local organizations or shelters in need.
