Clothing Swap for Breakthrough Montessori Families - Donation Days
Mon, Oct 29 8:00am - Fri, Nov 2 6:00pm
Petworth & Takoma Campuses

Families can bring in gently used clothing that they no longer need and then get “new” clothes that they can use!

Please see the attached PDF for additional details and donation labels to attached to bags.

Games or other items that could be used for indoor recess are welcome and will go directly to the school.  

Additionally, if you would like to make a monetary donation there will be a donation receptacle at each location (please note, this is in no way required).  The money will be given directly to the school to purchase NEW underwear and socks to be used as needed for students.  School admin will also get a first look at the donate items and put aside the items most needed by students to be used through the year.


WHEN (donation):  Clothes will be accepted at both campuses October 29-November 2               

Petworth:  Please place clothing in boxes located in the Family Room/Conference Room
Takoma: Please place clothing in boxes located near the front stairwell
