Donation Guidelines

Your donation can help a man or a woman enter or return to the workforce in style—and with a renewed sense of confidence and self-esteem!

What We Accept | If you are unsure whether or not an item is appropriate to donate, ask yourself if you would wear it to an interview or to work in a professional environment.  If the answer is yes, then we need it!
