Lone Star College CyFair hosts suit drive
Lone Star College — CyFair is holding a campus and communitywide professional attire suit drive to benefit Dress for Success Houston from March 5 to March 9.
The Counseling, Career and Disability Services Department is joining with DFSH for this year's campaign, titled SOS (Save One Suit), to provide interview-appropriate suits and career development to aid low-income women entering the workforce.
"Dress For Success Houston understands that if a woman doesn't have a job, she can't afford a suit. But, without a suit, she can't get a job," said Susan Siceluff, coordinator for employment development in a press release. "By donating professional attire to our suit drive, you will be helping someone less fortunate get on the road to success, including some of our students."
According to a press release, interview-appropriate women's suits (skirt or pants), blouses, gently used handbags, gently used shoes, scarves and new pantyhose will be accepted, as well as check donations made payable to Dress for Success Houston. Clothing donations should be dry-cleaned and on hangers.
Suits and check donations should be dropped off at the front desk of the Counseling, Career and Disability Services Department in the Center for Academic and Student Affairs, located on campus at CASA 109.
