For the most up-to-date announcements from the volunteers of The Southern Exchange, please ensure you’re frequently checking here for monthly updates.
We will be open on Tuesday, December 1 and Thursday, December 3 and then just once a week for the next two weeks — Thursday, December 10 and Thursday, December 17. The hours will be 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Please schedule your appointment to shop and be considerate by not booking an appointment for all three weeks at once but just book one week in advance to allow as many as possible to shop. Any appointments that were booked for other dates in December will be canceled and a cancelation email will be sent.
We will not be open for shoppers between December 18 and January 19. The reopening date is subject to change so please check back here for updates.
Our donation pods will continue to be open until December 19. They will reopen on January 2. Thank you for understanding that our staff is taking a break in processing donations.

Volunteers and donors, please note the following:
The Southern Exchange accepts food items between 2-5, Tuesday-Friday. Donors should bring the items during these hours so that a volunteer may store them to keep for seminary families in need. Canned food is accepted and may be left in the donation bins. Families in need who would benefit from these donations must contact The Southern Exchange at firstname.lastname@example.org and arrange an appointment for picking up food items.
