Dressbarn gathers clothing donations to assist women rejoining workforce
Dressbarn, through its partnership with Dress for Success, will collect everything from blazers to blouses at all of its 825 stores to assist women job-seekers nationwide. Dressbarn stores will also reward shoppers with a 15% discount off their entire purchase when they drop off new or gently used professional attire during the retailer's 10th annual S.O.S. - Send One Suit - Weekend donation drive, that will take place March 1-4.
Dressbarn believes that thousands of women may be unable to secure employment because they simply don't have appropriate business attire to wear to a job interview. The S.O.S. - Send One Suit - Weekend underscores the retailer's focus on the needs of the working woman and exemplifies its corporate commitment to philanthropic efforts dedicated to brightening the lives of women everywhere.
