Clothing Drive for Synchro Swans

People looking to get rid of clothing, bedding, accessories and toys will have an opportunity to do so this weekend and benefit the East Hampton Synchro Swans synchronized swimming team at the same time. The Swans are a competitive synchronized-swimming team that trains at the East Hampton Y.M.C.A.-RECenter.

Collection will be at the Springs Presbyterian Church on Old Stone Highway on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Swans have asked that all donations be packed in tied trash bags.

Items that will be accepted include:

Used, wearable clothing
Shoes and sneakers
Blankets, quilts, sheets, and comforters
Table cloths
Curtains and drapery
Fabric kitchen and bath accessories
Purses, backpacks, and briefcases
Hats and gloves
Fabric baby items
Stuffed animals
Some children's toys

The organizers have asked that no books, CDs, VHS tapes, appliances, outdoor toys, or furniture be brought to the collection site.

Those unable to bring their items to the church this weekend can e-mail Meg Preiss at or call 631-604-2432.
