“I have nothing to wear!” is the shopping cry of fashionistas everywhere. Unlike those of us who are simply tired of the clothes we already own, many low-income women really don’t have anything to wear to a job interview. Without professional attire, they can’t get a job. Without a job, they can’t afford clothes.
Dress for Success solves this dilemma by providing disadvantaged women with the clothes and confidence they need to return to the workforce. From interview training to accessorized outfits, Dress for Success helps women help themselves.
The support doesn’t stop with an interview ensemble. The Dress for Success Professional Women’s Group program provides employed clients with the practical information and inspiration to achieve their own self-defined successes.
To make sure deserving women have access to the resources they need to succeed, Dress for Success is holding its Annual 5K Power Walk at Castle Island in South Boston on May 11, 8 a.m. Mothers account for over 80% of the women served by Dress for Success, so what better way to kick-off Mother’s Day Weekend?
Celebrate family, fitness and financial independence. Lace up your walking shoes, and raise some money for this worthy cause!
