DAVENPORT — All are welcome to attend the second Holiday Movie and Gift Swap presented by the Congregation of the Humility of Mary (CHM) on Dec. 7 from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Humility of Mary Center, 820 West Central Park Ave., Davenport. The event is free.

A holiday movie will be shown at 7 p.m. “The Story of Stuff” is a provocative tour of our consumer-driven culture. It presents a fast-paced look at the underside of production, consumption and waste. It is intended to teach you something, make you laugh, and may change the way you look at all your stuff. With over 12 million online views, “The Story of Stuff” is one of the most widely viewed environmental-themed short films of all time.

Before and after the movie, participate in the CHM Holiday Gift Swap Meet. Why buy new stuff? As a way to reduce, reuse and recycle, everyone is invited to bring new or gently used items that are currently gathering dust on a closet shelf. Then go shopping for that perfect gift for your loved ones — no money necessary!

Leftover items will be donated to Humility of Mary Housing and Shelter Programs.
