This weekend, you can recycle clothing through Suit Yourself, and help a woman find a job.
On Saturday, August 6, the all-volunteer non-profit agency Suit Yourself is collecting gently worn professional clothing, shoes, and accessories to be furnished to women in transition who are seeking employment.
Those donations will go to clients of Suit Yourself’s social service agency partners: women who are entering or returning to the workforce — women who need appropriate clothing for interviews and to wear on the job but, right now, can’t afford to buy it.
Suit Yourself volunteers work with their clients to build personal wardrobes — coats, suits, blazers/jackets, pants, skirts, blouses/tops, shoes, boots, purses, billfolds/wallets, scarves, belts, jewelry — that will show them at their best for job interviews and returning to work.
