Another year is almost behind us and this year we have donated to a few new organizations.This is one of them.
I usually try to find a few that are not on the Radar screen of many people and this year as I was surfing the net I got a note from a very dear client who has just joined the board of Dress for Success. I could write something but it is best said from their web site. Whether it is money or clothing or volunteering this is a wonderful cause and provides a future for so many women and families .
The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
Since opening our doors in January 2011, Dress for Success Ottawa has provided support to 1000 women. What these women have in common is that they want to work and are ready to make positive change for themselves and their families. But, through challenging circumstances, they may have forgotten, or may never have known, that they are important, valuable members of our community who have a lot to offer potential employers. Dress for Success suits women for employment, from the inside out.
Thank you Ellen for that timely email .
