Dressbarn to hold 'Send One Suit' Clothing Drive
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.
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.
There are local Dressbarn locations in Wall at the Allaire Plaza, Tinton Falls at the Jersey Shore Outlets, Howell on Route 9 and in Toms River at the Ocean County Mall. You can find a list of locations here.
