The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
Poverty often affects women the most and its effects on them & their families can be long-lasting. Therefore addressing women’s needs is pivotal to improving the quality of life not only for that woman but also her family, future generations & her community.
Entrée are currently hosting a Clothing Donation Drive to support Dress for Success Adelaide. Items for donation may be dropped off at Entrée Recruitment (Level 5, 81 Flinders Street, Adelaide) between business hours throughout the month of February. If you wish to collect clothing items within your office, an Entrée representative can collect the items upon the end of February and deliver to Dress for Success.
Clothing Donations We Can Accept:
- Skirt Suits
- Pant Suits
- Dress Pants
- Long and short sleeved blouses and shirts
- Shift dresses
- Closed toe shoes, flats or pumps
- Handbags, totes, briefcases, folios
- New hosiery
- New make up
- Underwear (new with tags only please)
We are looking for all sizes in these items, gently used or new and unworn. Please ensure all items have been washed or dry cleaned, do not have any obvious stains, tears, buttons missing or broken zippers. As a guide, if you would loan the item to your best friend for a job interview, then it’s suitable for donation!
Items We Cannot Accept:
- Used underwear
- Used makeup products
- Mens and childrens clothes
In order to maximise all donations, any items that are not suitable for use within the boutique will be sold at pop-up sales to raise additional funds.
If you don’t have items to donate you can still support this fabulous organisation with a financial donation which will help them purchase new essential items such as shoes and underwear and ensure the continuation of their service.
Dress for Success understands that if a woman doesn’t have a job, she can’t afford the right clothes and support to get a job. By supporting Dress for Success in whatever way you can, you are helping to help women become empowered to support themselves and their families and get on the road to success in work and life.
