Donate Clothing

While today Dress for Success provides a full range of programs and services to help Triangle women find and sustain employment, our flagship service is to provide appropriate work attire. 

Each client receives an interview suit, and once she secures a job she can come back and receive a full week of work attire. 

While we have some areas of greater need, every donation is leveraged in support of our mission.

  • Shoes size 10 and higher

What Can You Donate?
