$30,000 Goal

Fort Worth Community Collaborative (FWCC) is a 501(c)(3) organization that was established in 2022 to act as a collaborative partner between families, underserved populations, and their access to clothing. Our goal is to create the first true, community based clothing closet in Fort Worth. The existing clothing closets in the area are sponsored by church ministries, public schools, or offered to adoptive families only. These organizations do wonderful work, but they also exclude a large portion of the population. 

FWCC partners with other nonprofits or businesses to host “pop-up” shopping events and mutual aid. Our community closet is funded by donations and there is never a cost for community members to come and shop. These shopping events offer a direct path to resources where there are no waiting lists and no forms to fill out. We hope to drive foot traffic and spread awareness about other resources offered (meal pantries, free little libraries, discounted classes, etc.) by our nonprofit host. 

Giving Activity

Mission

Our mission is to connect communities with clothing by operating Fort Worth's first and only FREE community clothing closet. We also strive to reduce textile and clothing waste in the greater Fort Worth metroplex.

Needs

We want to buy a bus and make FWCC mobile! Transportation is still a barrier for many of the communities that we serve. We would love to remove that barrier, and give everyone the chance to shop for free with FWCC.

In the mean time, we need storage bins, shelving units and racks to help us keep our inventory organized.

Equity Statement

Our organization proudly serves all ages, sizes and gender identities. Our clothing closet offers benefits to families, adults and children at our pop up events. We also work with LGBTQ+ organizations to provide gender affirming clothing. At FWCC, we have something for everyone!
