Saturday, Nov. 4, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Melican Middle School, 145 Lincoln St., Northborough. Sponsored by the Northborough Junior Women’s Club.
Saturday, Nov. 4, St. Stephen Lutheran Church, 537 Bolton St., Marlborough, will hold a clothing giveaway from 10 a.m. to noon.
The clothing will be in good to excellent condition; most items are arranged by size, with some on hangers, to create the feeling of shopping in a store, with “departments” for men’s, women’s and children’s clothes.
In addition, accessories – hats, gloves, shoes, boots, belts, costume jewelry, scarves and pocketbooks – will also be available, all at no cost.
The event is open to the public, regardless of need; recycling advocates are especially welcome to shop. Bring your own bag, or take a bag provided and fill it with whatever you can use.
