CONNECTING COMMUNITIES WITH CLOTHING AND MORE
INTERVIEW WITH FWCC PRESIDENT AND CO-FOUNDER, KELLY WARNER
I was born in Austin and grew up in central Texas. I graduated from Texas State University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. I've worked for several state agencies doing environmental work, and I've always considered myself a public servant at heart. I attribute my passion for public service to my father, Bobby, who was an Austin fireman for 32 years.
WE'RE A SMALL ORGANIZATION WITH BIG DREAMS
Our mission of connecting communities with clothing goes beyond hosting pop-up shops. We want to bring the first community-funded clothing closet to Fort Worth.
FROM IDEA TO REALITY: THE EVOLUTION OF FORT WORTH COMMUNITY COLLABORATIVE
The idea for FWCC started way back in 2019 with a Facebook group, a few mom friends and a connection to a local community center.
FWCC EARNS SILVER SEAL OF TRANSPARENCY FROM CANDID
We just earned our 2023 Silver Seal of Transparency from Candid. We are excited to share the work our non-profit does through our non-profit profile.
LOCAL NON-PROFIT LEADS THE WAY IN CLOTHING DISTRIBUTION
FWCC is thrilled to announce a remarkable achievement that profoundly impacted the lives of over 100 community members. In collaboration with fellow nonprofits LVT Rise and Chhaupadi, FWCC hosted a highly successful community pop-up shop, distributing nearly 1,000 pounds of donated clothing and over 3,000 menstrual and hygiene products to community members at no cost.
FWCC & FORTRESS TEAM UP ON THE HISTORIC SOUTHSIDE
Summer is winding down, and the back-to-school season is officially here! This month we are partnering with Fortress in the Historic Southside neighborhood of Fort Worth. We have been focusing our donation efforts on school supplies and uniforms, but we will still have plenty of inventory for every occasion.
IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE A HOLIDAY TO GIVE BACK
A few weeks ago, we reported that charitable giving dropped 10.5% in 2022 and shared three local nonprofits to support. Multiple readers and social media followers encouraged us to share more Fort Worth foundations and organizations — and we couldn’t be more honored to be part of this community. Here are 40 Fort Worth organizations to show a little love to:
