With thousands of women unable to secure employment because they lack the resources to take the initial, yet vital, step of looking presentable for a job interview, dressbarn is teaming up with the non-profit organization, Dress for Success, to gather more than 60,000 articles of clothing, as part of its S.O.S. – Send One Suit – Weekend® donation drive, March 1-4.
This year’s clothing drive marks the 10th consecutive year dressbarn and Dress for Success have partnered to help women in need receive professional business attire. All 825 dressbarn stores across the country will serve as drop-off sites for new or gently used professional attire including suits, dress shirts, blazers, pants, dresses and shoes that will be used to benefit women seeking to transition into the workforce.
More than 51,000 professional items of clothing were collected during last year’s ‘Send One Suit’ donation drive. This year, dressbarn would like to collect more than 60,000 pieces of professional attire; a pace of 15,000 items each day.
All 825 dressbarn stores will offer donors an additional 15% total purchase savings in gratitude for their generosity. A complete list of stores can be found at www.dressbarn.com.
So mark your calendars for March 1-4 and help deserving women Dress for Success. We know first impressions are key and through Dress for Success we can help make that first impression.
