Dress for Success | Charity of the Month

Hockey is back! Therefore, so is the Charity of the Month program!

Innovative Office Solutions is the proud sponsor of this program in partnership with the Minnesota Wild. The program brings exposure to Minnesota Charities, once per month throughout the NHL season.

DressForSuccess-logoThe mission of Dress for Success is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

Dress for Success Twin Cities is working to end poverty in our community by helping economically disadvantaged women achieve self-sufficiency through gainful employment.

How to get involved!

Currently, the largest needs are for volunteers and financial support. No clothing donations are being accepted currently.

Upcoming Events

4th Annual Sweet Success Luncheon will be held April 26th, 2013. Please go to www.dressforsuccess.org/twincities to learn more and reserve your seat!

Individual Volunteer Opportunities

Image Coach –  Image Coaching is an enjoyable and rewarding way to boost a woman’s confidence and make a direct impact on our clients’ lives. Volunteers work one-on-one with a Dress for Success client to help her select her professional attire and to provide support and coaching as she prepares for her interview.

Clothing Inventory Maintenance – Organizing the apparel received by Dress for Success is an important and ongoing task. We always need volunteers who can help sort donations by size and season, change inventory and organize the racks.

Corporate Volunteer Opportunities

Mock Interview Sessions – Many of our corporate partners bring together groups of employees to host mock interview sessions with our clients. These sessions offer rewarding and empowering experience for both corporate partners and our clients.

Clothing Inventory Maintenance – Our corporate partners often get together as a group and donate a few hours to come into to our boutique and help us organize, sort and hang the apparel received through donations.

Speakers for Professional Women’s Group – Speakers are needed to discuss career development topics in the areas of work, financial literacy, and life skills. Speaking to Professional Women’s Group members is a wonderful way to meet motivated women who want to further develop and advance in their careers.
