Our Fall Dress for Success Donation Drive is going to look a little different this time around but the opportunity to help women in our community hasn't changed, in fact it has become even more important!
We are going with a theme this year and it is Quality over Quantity
. Our challenge to you is to pick a maximum of 6 items
that are clean, career focused, in- season and interview ready.
Think of an outfit, or an outerwear piece that you have moved on from, or a pair of shoes that doesn’t fit anymore that you haven’t worn or even one of the five black purses you have in your closet.
We will be collecting clothing donations on October 24 & 25 by 30 minute appointments only. That way we can manage the flow of drop offs to make sure everyone is safe and we have ample enough time to clean in between. If you do not have any clothing to donate we are encouraging money donations to the organization since its takes about $100 per client consultation. With your cash donation you will be able to take advantage of this in season 15% discount.
