Shop Our Fort Worth Grand Opening to Support Lena Pope Home!

The Grand Opening of our brand new, fresh and fabulous Fort Worth, Texas store is just around the corner on August 10-11. We’re excited to share that we will donate 10% of our Grand Opening Weekend sales to local nonprofit organization, Lena Pope Home!

Since 1930, Lena Pope Home has been working to improve the lives of children and their families. The organization offers counseling and education programs that strengthen families and keep them together, while providing children with strong foundations they need to have a bright future. In 2008, they opened a charter school called Chapel Hill Academy that does not charge tuition, and teaches 500 children in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. In total, Lena Pope Home impacts more than 20,000 individuals a year!

Plus, our new Fort Worth location has another neat tie to Lena Pope Home. The Chapel Hill Shopping Center, where our new Fort Worth store is located, sits on the original land of Lena Pope Home! In the 1990s Lena Pope’s committee made the decision to lease the land to help raise additional funds for the home and its programs.

Knowing that our new shopping center has such a strong tie to Lena Pope Home and that their mission statement is in line with our commitment to supporting women and children, we knew they would be the perfect nonprofit partner for the Grand Opening of our new Fort Worth store!
