Yet another sign of these trying times.
Employees at the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation's Office of Business Services are organizing a clothing swap meet for state workers on Oct. 24 at 10000 Goethe Rd. in Sacramento from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This flier says the event is a "hands-on community effort for State workers by state workers." And a litte further down: "To assist State workers during this difficult and stressful time a Swap has been organized. Clothes & accessories available at no charge (up to 10 items for men, women, and children)."
Karen Smith, one of the employees behind the swap meet, told The State Worker that the group needs more donations. You'll find contact information on the flier.
The first 10 items are free for state workers in need. Leftover goods and proceeds from refreshments on sale at the event will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and leftover clothing will go to Women Escaping a Violent Environment and the Stanford Children's Receiving Home.
