Participating merchants and restaurants offer back-to-school giveaways (for the kiddies only) and promotional discounts for the whole family.

"It’s time to dig through your closets and storage containers again: DC Home Buzz is hosting another Freecycle! This time, we’ll be participating as part of the upcoming Bruce Monroe Community Day at Bruce Monroe Park. Freecycle Fete is an opportunity for neighbors to give away items they don’t need, as opposed to throwing them away. Simply come, set up “shop” at our of our tables, and discover treasures. While we do encourage everyone to bring their unwanted items, all attendees are able to “shop” around."
