Feminine Care Product Distribution  -- May 30, 2020
The current pandemic is definitely creating many challenges for us, our families and our communities, and many folks and neighbors are looking for ways to help. In fact, one group of caring moms identified a unique area of support for Fort Worth families, and they developed a drive to provide feminine care products. Their efforts were highly successful and now they are ready to distribute. Because several of them are some of our strongest Breakthrough supporters, they are insistent that our Breakthrough families know about the distribution ahead of time. Here are those details:

Date:  May 30, 2020

Time:  10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Location:  EOSERA, 5000 South Freeway, Fort Worth TX 76115
 
Thank you for your overall commitment to Breakthrough Fort Worth and the education of your children! Any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Breakthrough Office at 817-302-3280.
