Getting into the Thanksgiving Spirit

November 22, 2016 8:05 pm
It’s almost Thanksgiving! We’re getting in the spirit by doing two things: one, making sure we have elastic-waist pants for the big day, and two, being grateful for YOU, our generous supporters!
A few years ago, Norma was working through a tough time – between moving here from DC and navigating a custody battle, she was feeling overwhelmed. The Women’s Opportunity Resource Center referred Norma to Career Wardrobe for new interview clothing that might help kick-start her job search here in Philly.
“I was a little embarrassed,” she said of her first visit. “But everyone was so nice!” After getting her new suit, Norma felt a surge of confidence, and decided to take a chance and apply for her dream job. Today, she’s happily working in higher education, and she and her son are doing great.
Thousands of people just like Norma come to us each year for the professional clothing and job skills necessary to be competitive in today’s economy. But the programs, the clothing, the confidence…. it only happens Because You Give!
This holiday season, we are looking to YOU for support! We are working towards 216 DONORS TO END 2016, and you can be a part of it! Donate today, and help us finish out this year with all the success, opportunity, and hope our clients deserve. It’s all possible #BecauseUGive!
