The State Worker

Chronicling civil-service life for California state workers

State worker clothing swap meet rescheduled for Nov. 14

A clothing swap meet organized by state workers for state workers has been reset for Nov. 14 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at New Life Preschool, 10190 Systems Parkway in Sacramento. (Click here for a map of the location.)

As we reported last week, a group of state workers had planned the swap meet for last Saturday, but they ran into a snag over its location that forced them to postpone the event. The preschool, which is waiving fees for state workers who enroll their kids, stepped up to help. You can click here to read more about New Life Preschool.

Organizers are continuing to accept clothing donations at these drop off spots until Nov. 12:

- 1515 S St., Room 104 North
- 10000 Goethe Road, Suite C1C
- 1900 Alabama Ave. (ask for Cecily Brown in the master data unit)

Leftover goods will go to charity as noted in this State Worker blog post.

On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on and other websites. We've heard from hundreds of you already and we're listening. Please continue to add your thoughts and questions here. We also encourage you to write Letters to the Editor on this and other topics.
