As working professionals, we are aware of the value of a wardrobe. A snappy suit can make or break an interview. A fabulous outfit can establish a professional demeanor that opens doors.
It's the unattainability of these professional essentials that perpetuate a cycle of unemployment and poverty for those who are struggling to return to work. ATD-Orange County is proud to once again support Working Wardrobes in their mission to help men, women, young adults and veterans overcome this difficult challenge so they can achieve the dignity of work.
This May, we're asking you to dip into your closet and pull out that one (or two) item(s) that you just aren't wearing for work anymore. Bring it with you to the May Learning Event, and we'll contribute it to Working Wardrobe's Professional Clothing and Accessories Drive.
(You don't need to attend the May event, but that's where we'll be.)*
You'll find the "Drive for Success" details here.
Please note some of the details: we're looking for clothes in "slightly used" condition, clean and on hangars. Ideally, these clothes are "interview ready."
Please take a look. If there's something in your closet that doesn't bring you joy, but can bring joy to someone struggling to re-enter the workforce, we'd love to find it on the Working Wardrobes clothing rack at this month's Learning Event.

* Not attending the MLE, but want to contribute anyway? Stop by between 5:15 and 6:15 pm, drop off your donations and get some quick networking in. We'll be there.
