TWEEN CLOTHING SWAP
For The Maddie Project
Spring is here and what better time to freshen up your wardrobe. While sorting through your closet I am sure you will find items that don’t fit anymore, aren’t quite your style or you just don’t seem to be wearing. Drop them off at Girls Are - April 25-28th and swap piece for piece with other girls your age on Sat April 29th from 10-5pm. This is an awesome way to get new clothing without spending a dime and it’s good for the environment.
Girls Are is hosting the Tween Clothing Swap in support of The Maddie Project. The Maddie Project is a community effort in support of youth struggling with depression and other mental health related concerns. Their mission is to let no youth or their family suffer without help. A small donation towards this very important cause would be much appreciated. For more information about The Maddie Project go to www.themaddieproject.ca
At the Girls Are Tween Clothing Swap we accept clothing, accessories, bags and shoes that are clean, in good to gently used condition and suitable for girls age 9-13 yrs. It is sure to be fun with snacks and refreshments provided.
*a minimum of 5 items must be donated for clothing swap - you will receive a ticket with total pieces donated allowing you to pick the same amount of pieces.
**all remaining clothes will be donated to charity unless otherwise specified

TEEN FLOW MOVEMENT-Instructed by Alwynn Taylor of Taylor'd Motion Pilates
This is a flowing & stretch centered class. It relates to the challenges of the modern teen's life. Stress relief, meditation and relaxation are essential as a tool to elicit focus. We explore proper posture, balance, breath and movement. Teen Flow revitalizes focus, low energy, tempers, hyperactivity, and provides a healthy way to experiment, take risks and explore the body.
