DRESS FOR SUCCESS
We are both excited and proud to announce our 6th annul Dress for Success Clothing Drive! Operating March 12-23, 2018.
Dress for Success collects ready-to-wear suits, jackets, pants, scarves, shoes, boots, coats, and accessories. Donations benefit The Clothes Closet at the South Winnipeg Family Information Centre (SWFIC) who provide gently used women's work wear and accessories, free of charge, to women re-entering the workforce for a variety of reasons, whether having recently left abusive situations or not having means for interview-appropriate clothing or job training attire.
We are aiming to surpass last years record number of 1,576 lbs of clothes collected.
Go clean out your closet and help build a fellow working woman’s.
Drop off locations:
All Winnipeg Perth's Drycleaners locations are generously accepting drop offs.
Exciting news! We’ve added a NEW drop-off location – Fairmont Hotel in downtown Winnipeg. A wonderful convenience for generous donors who work downtown! Make your way there this week with donations, and drop them in the bin located at the Human Resources Office (located on the concourse level of the hotel) between 08:30 and 16:00 Monday to Friday.
All Perth’s locations and the Fairmont will be accepting donations until Friday, March 23rd!
