Donate to the Breakthrough Boutique

Dear FWCD Families, 
 
Breakthrough Boutique is happening this summer, and we need your help! The COVID-19 social distancing will bring something NEW this year: a virtual boutique website for the Breakthrough students and faculty. As Breakthrough Boutique Co-Chairs, we are building a website to allow students to view available items and pick out the perfect Fancy Meal outfit and, hopefully, an outfit that will work for a future job interview, school presentation, graduation or other special event.
 
As you are spending time at home, please consider helping to make the boutique special again this year by taking some time to look through your closet and set aside gently-used, well-cared for, school and church clothing for Middle and Upper School boys and girls. These donated items make up the Breakthrough Boutique.
 
Breakthrough Fort Worth is hoping to host it's annual Fancy Meal Celebration, a “dressy” affair for the students. Students attending Fancy Meal shop the boutique to pick out their luncheon outfits. After that shopping spree, all Breakthrough students shop the boutique for school-year attire. 
 
In particular, we are looking for donations of dresses, suits, shirts, blouses, slacks for boys and girls, khakis for boys, sport coats, button-down shirts and polos, as well as shoes for both boys and girls. Accessories are also needed: ties, shoes, belts, purses, jewelry, shawls/wraps and shrug/cardigan sweaters — anything that completes an outfit! The boutique also accepts everyday school wear for boys and girls — jeans; casual dresses; skirts and shirts; polos; casual T-shirts; tennis shoes; and winter clothing, including jackets, hoodies and coats. 
 
Not familiar with the Breakthrough Boutique? Check out this informative video. While the Fort Worth Country Day campus is currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, Boutique donations still can be dropped off at the Bryant Irvin guard gate from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the marked bins. Donations will be accepted through July 1.
 
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email us. We hope you'll help us make this year's Breakthrough Boutique the most successful yet!
 
Sincerely,
Abby McGehee '21
