"The Money Smart Blue Jeans Swap was an easy program to execute, and it filled a real need in our community, with many participants expressing the wish that it could be an annual event. Because of its enthusiastic reception, we not only brought it back for a second year, but also reprised the concept in an equally successful art and craft supply swap. Depending on community needs, the basic framework could be used for all sorts of goods: school uniforms, sports equipment, and board games are just a few ideas.
In the future, we also plan to involve a local thrift store, both to “seed” in-demand sizes and also to help us manage our leftovers.”
