Dress for Success solves the â€œCatch-22â€? that confronts disadvantaged women trying to enter the workforce: without a job, how can you afford a suit? But without a suit, how can you get a job? â€œ
Dress for Success is not only an amazing non-profit agency focused on helping increase womenâ€™s self-sufficiency, they also provide a valuable resource to ensure good clothing that is no longer needed by its current owner, can be â€œrecycledâ€?, ensuring both the clothing and its new owner receive that valuable second chance.
Seasons will be changing soon, and maybe itâ€™s time for you to clean out your closet. If you have professional clothing you no longer need, think about donating them to Dress for Success. Your clothes will become a part of a deserving womanâ€™s journey to a new career and life.
When looking for appropriate clothing to donate think about what you would wear to an interview. Dress for Success currently is accepting nearly-new and cleaned:
Coordinated, contemporary, interview-appropriate skirt and pant suits
Beautiful, crisp blouses
Gorgeous blazers and jackets
They are particularly in need of larger-size suits and apparel.
