Join me in participating in this year’s Dress For Success Houston’s S.O.S. (Send One Suit) Drive. The effort, formerly known as Clean Out Your Closet Week, provides interview suits, confidence boosts and career development to more than 45,000 women in over 75 cities each year. Dress for Success is a not-for-profit organization that helps low-income women make tailored transitions into the workforce. Each Dress for Success client receives one suit when she has a job interview and a second suit when she gets the job.
If you would like to contribute, please bring your interview appropriate suit in excellent condition, cleaned, pressed and on a hanger to Kingwood Country Club on March 6, 2013 from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. Matching jacket and pants or skirt are excellent donations. Don’t have suit to donate? Dress For Success Houston suggests donating $75 toward the cost of a suit for clients over size 14. Receipts for donations will be sent directly by Dress For Success Houston. For more information call 281-360-3928 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
