POSTPONED - The Cat's Pajamas Clothing Exchange - An Annual Benefit for Arts West

For over a decade the Cat’s Pajamas Clothing Exchange has brought countless Athenians the joy of “new” clothes in a fun and community minded way. For the next one coming up we hope to break the record of the most clothes ever offered! The mountains of clothes available all are to benefit a good cause: Arts West! Your local City of Athens Community Arts Center. Throughout the year Arts West provides space for the Southeast Ohio Musical Lending Library, the PRISM LGBTQ Youth Art Program, Afternoon Arts classes for Kids, monthly art openings, square dances, music and choir concerts, plays, workshops, special events, and more. If you are on the prowl for a new wardrobe, there simply is no better way to get one than the Cat’s Pajamas Clothing Exchange!
