Do you have some nice but ignored business clothes lurking in your closet? We want them. Join us in supporting low-income job seekers as we host our annual suit drive from August 12-23. We'll donate your interview-appropriate attire to Dress for Success and similar nonprofit organizations. Clothes should be suitable for work, as well as clean, stylish and in good condition.
Robert Half (TCG's parent company) has collected nearly 250,000 pieces of professional clothing and accessories since our first suit drive in 2002. Thanks to our firm's clients, the job candidates we place and our employees, we took in 32,600 items in 2012 alone. We want to top that this year – and with your help we can.
The impact of making a donation is significant. “Attempting to reenter the workforce can be intimidating and overwhelming, but when a woman walks out of Dress for Success with her suit, she leaves as a confident woman ready to establish a new career – and a new life,” says Joi Gordon, CEO of Dress for Success Worldwide.
