Making a difference in the lives of someone in need can be as
easy as cleaning your closet or your spouse's. If you find any
women's suits you don t need anymore, the Association for Women
Administrators would love to take them off your hands.
AWA, in cooperation with the East Campus Community Outreach
Committee and UCAAMP, will collect business suits and money for a
program that provides low-income women with the clothes they need
to enter the workforce.
The effort is part of Make a Difference Day on Saturday, Oct. 28 this year. However, the collection will be concentrated in the work days right before that date.
"Dress for Success" Cincinnati will benefit from the project
and at this time that organization does not collect men's
clothing. Donations of clothing appropriate for a job interview
and ready to be worn are sought as well as checks made payable to
Dress for Success Cincinnati.
Clothing donations are tax deductible and printed tax receipts
will be available at the donation sites. Items specifically in
need include: Interview appropriate skirt and pant suits, and
blouses (particularly size 12 and above); winter coats suitable
for wearing to an interview; and purses.
All items should be cleaned, hung on hangers and ready to be
worn. Donations by check should be made out to "Dress for
Success" Cincinnati and may be sent to Jo Diamantes at Mail
