We are currently looking for more volunteers to open the trailer, sort, and post flyers. Send us an email if you're interested.
Bring your unwanted materials or a small monetary donation to exchange for stuff in the trailer. We have an assortment of art supplies, along with some household items. We don't accept clothes, but we do have scrap fabric.
We're located at 31 Canal Street along the riverwalk between the Illustration Building and Design Center.
