For the thousands of women who are without an interview suit or professional-looking ensemble, Dress for Success, the international non-profit organization that promotes economic independence for the disadvantaged women, has teamed up with Dressbarn, the national retailer of women’s clothing, to collect and distribute professional attire for its 10th annual “Send One Suit Weekend“.
To give underprivileged women across the country the ability to walk into a job interview with confidence, is the goal of this partnership – the path to self-sufficiency begins with the elementary tools to get their foot in the door. I am personally very attached to this program, and truly hope that you will consider this the time of year to re-evaluate your work wear. If you haven’t worn that skirt suit in two years, this may be your chance to give it to someone who will wear it every week!
From March 1-4, gently-used suits, pants, shirts, skirts, shoes and other professional items can be donated at any of the 825 Dressbarn locations nationwide. These donations will be distributed amongst local non-profit organizations to be given to less fortunate women looking to re-enter the workforce.
