Cowley Clothing Exchange to take place Oct. 24


Cowley College Education majors will collect items from Sept. 1 through Oct. 23 in advance of the Cowley Clothing Exchange on Oct. 24. Items can be dropped off in the Social Science Department located in the basement of the Brown Center on the main campus in Arkansas City.


In the past, the event has collected well over 5,000 articles of clothing and shoes and served 200-300 people. Families stand in line several hours to be the first in the door. While the focus is on children’s needs, any size clothing will be accepted.


Winter items and children’s clothes are items most in need. Boxes for the sorting process and grocery bags for distribution day are also in demand.



The Cowley Clothing Exchange will be held from 1-5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24 in the Earle N. Wright Community Room.
