Clothing drive helps women achieve economic independence
More than 1,200 donations collected during the recent Women’s Interest Network (a Salt River Project employee interest group) Professional Clothing Drive are helping women dress for success as they enter the workforce.
Over three weeks in August, employees donated gently used or new business clothing, shoes, handbags and necklaces to benefit Dress for Success, which provides professional attire and development tools to help women achieve economic independence.
Bins at various SRP facilities in the Valley were loaded with enough items, valued at $4,350, to fill two SUVs and one sedan to the brim. WIN will continue to collect donations for Dress for Success at the group’s upcoming events in FY18–19.
Thank you to all those involved toward this great cause!
SRP employees support the community in a variety of ways. Check out our volunteers page for more info.
