A D.C.-based nonprofit organization which supports strong children, families, and communities with a fierce commitment to equity, has announced new program membership policies for its no-cost Outfitters clothing boutique in Ward 8.

The new more inclusive memberships for Martha’s Table Outfitters — which became available Jan. 6 to caregivers with children 21 and under and emancipated youth — provide a monthly store credit to shop at no cost Monday through Friday. Previously, Outfitters only offered memberships for caregivers with children ages 8 and under. The new store policies will create more opportunities for Ward 8 residents to access Outfitters as needed.

“Putting families first has always been at the forefront of Martha’s Table. That is why Outfitters has developed updated store policies based on community feedback,” said Kim Ford, president/ CEO, Martha’s Table. “We look forward to creating a more inclusive Outfitters experience, supporting all residents who seek access to professional attire and children’s clothing.”

Outfitters is also offering new Saturday hours once a month, open to all neighbors (no restrictions). The first Saturday shopping experience will take place from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Feb. 1.

These changes welcome more residents from the community, building upon the organization’s philosophy of “a seat for everyone to the table.”

Members of the press along with Ward 8 community members are invited to attend a soft opening from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., Thursday, Jan. 16 of the updated Martha’s Table Outfitters. For more information call 202-328-6608.
