Dress for Success Comes to the Triangle

Clearly, this is a philanthropic group I would support. I first heard about this program years ago in a fashion magazine ad and have been interested in their work ever since. I'm REALLY glad to see they're putting together a program here!

This great bit of business news of course came from Carolina Business Connection. You can read the full press release here or read the highlights below:
"Dress for Success Worldwide is pleased to announce the opening of a new Dress for Success location serving the Triangle. In addition, the affiliate is celebrating S.O.S. – Send One Suit – Week from March 31-April 5, 2008."

"Women come to Dress for Success by referral only after having completed job training programs offered by local social service agencies and non-profit organizations. Each client receives one interview suit during her first visit and, once she finds work, receives additional attire, either separates or a second suit, and an invitation to join the Professional Women's Group (PWG)."
I think what I like the most about the program is it's a helping hand, not a hand out, as women are required to complete job training programs before receiving support from this great group!
