LAWRENCEVILLE — Dress for Success Mercer County, an affiliate of the international non-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women, is participating in S.O.S. – Send One Suit – Weekend® taking place March 1-4. In its 10th year, the campaign encourages women nationwide to donate one new or nearly-new interview suit to help another woman enter the workforce and take charge of her life.
Dressbarn, the national title sponsor and drop-off location for S.O.S. – Send One Suit – Weekend®, will accept donations of professional apparel for women throughout the four-day event. Last year, more than 51,000 suits and career separates were donated by consumers at dressbarn stores. The donations are distributed to Dress for Success affiliates located throughout the United States. On average, more than 20% of each affiliate’s annual suiting needs are met through S.O.S –Send One Suit- Weekend®.
“We are proud to participate in S.O.S. – Send One Suit – Weekend,” said Lorrie Klaric. “By donating just one suit, you are supporting a local woman on her journey to economic independence and to achieving a brighter future for herself and her family.”
