King of Prussia, PA [May 4, 2018] – AVE, a brand of Korman Communities specializing in furnished suites and luxury apartments, announces it will be hosting a Professional Clothing Drive at its seven flexible-stay communities in The Greater Philadelphia Area to support Career Wardrobe from May 6-June 6, leading up to Career Wardrobe’s Hope’s Night Out benefit.
AVE encourages team members, residents, and partners to donate gently worn and clean professional clothing and accessories for women and men, as well travel-size toiletries.
Since 1995, Career Wardrobe has served individuals in Philadelphia with the clothing, career skills, and confidence necessary to transition to work. Its mission is to empower individuals in transition by providing programs that inspire the confidence necessary to achieve self-sufficiency and pursue a productive career.
Lea Anne Welsh, COO of Korman Communities and President of AVE, will be escorting a Career Wardrobe participant who has successfully transitioned to work on the Hope Walk runway. She is also donating an “Empower Hour” for the silent auction, where attendees will be able to bid on an hour of her time to provide mentorship and support.
