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.

clothing drive

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 Location 0103.
