GREAT NEWS for our current students and their families!
The Southern Exchange is happy to announce that we will welcome shoppers without appointments starting on Tuesday, May 4. We will be open from Tuesdays through Fridays from 2:00-5:00 p.m. Temperature checks will no longer be required but masks are requested until further notice.
Students/spouses may shop up to once a day but must be currently enrolled in classes. Our usual guidelines apply with four garments/shoes per family member per day as well as up to four household/toy items and 2 books from the book room. We have lots of 90 day items that can be taken or reserved for later pick up but shoppers may only have one such item every 90 days. Details about our policy are posted on our webpage. E-mail us at email@example.com with any questions.
If you will graduate in May, you will not be eligible to shop at the Southern Exchange after May 7. If you will be moving out and donating items, please be mindful that we get a windfall of donations when students move out. PLEASE be sure that what you are donating is very usable and if not, please place those items in the dumpster and not in the donation pods!
Donations will continue to be collected in the pods in the parking lot through July 30. We ask that all donations be left undisturbed until we can process them and place them in stock.
Appointments, masks and temperature checks are still required through April 30!

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.
