A clothing exchange/swap program, New to You Exchange, is now available to all High School students. According to organizer Ms. Emily Karas, a wide variety of clothing, accessories, and toiletries are available for both male and female students at no charge. "The two main purposes of this program are to provide free clothing to students in need and to promote the recycling and reusing of goods," stated Ms. Karas. The clothing is made available to students through donations from fellow students, Southern Columbia faculty and staff,  and community members. The New to You Exchange is open to High School students every Wednesday during Activity Period. Throughout the week new donations are processed, laundered, and sorted. On Wednesdays students are able to “shop” and select a certain number of clothing, accessory, and toiletry items at no charge. As an incentive for more donations, students who make a donation that week are then able to select several additional items. Many thanks are extended to all involved in this most-worthy initiative!
