Neighborhood festival and donation drive tomorrow at Meridian Hill Park

This sounds like a neat event -- a book and clothing swap, plus toy donation drive and a lot more.

Click the flyer at right for more info. And they've changed the time due to the heat, it'll be 11am-3pm.

"A community festival and donation drive to celebrate the people who make DC the wonderful city it is. 

Bring those clothes, books, and toys, you don't need and join us on the upper level of the park this Saturday, July 7th! The event will be organized into 6 corners:

Clothing Corner- swap or donate your clothing items
Reading Corner- swap/donate books and enjoy a book as we convert a section of the park to an outdoor library
Art Corner- help our interactive art projects by tweeting pictures of your Saturday around DC to @inonedaydc and writing wishes to hang on tree branches in accordance to the Japanese holiday Tanabata celebrated on July 7
Music Corner- watch performances or perform yourself in an open invitation stage
Play Corner- pass the time with some toys and donate your old ones
Health and Wellness Corner- enjoy some free yoga and laughter exercise sessions in this section

All of the items remaining at the end of the day will be distributed among several community organizations providing great services in DC, including The Homeless Children's Playtime Project and Dress for Success.
