Local Partners

»The Free Clothing Exchange: Founded by a group of Mosaic families nearly a decade ago, the FCE community exists to provide and share clothing resources with neighbors in North Portland and beyond. It is a free community event held every odd month at the Kenton Church on North Lombard Street. Everyone is welcome. All sizes of men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing are exchanged.

 
We are looking for the following specific donations (since we don’t have enough space for everything!).
 

Winter always brings more clothing needs to our community, and exchangers have a unique ability to help their neighbors stay warm by exchanging specific items:

  • Winter jackets
  • Winter shoes
  • Men’s pants
  • Sweatshirts
  • Men’s & women’s socks (must be new)
