NATIONAL SECONDHAND WARDROBE DAY
National Secondhand Wardrobe Day is celebrated each year across the United States on August 25th. Donating some of your rarely worn business attire can benefit you with extra space, and can help someone else who is reentering the job market during difficult financial times.
Here are a few ideas of how you can celebrate today’s holiday while impacting the lives of others and the professional world:
Dress for Success is a global not-for-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
Donate your stuff to Goodwill, and help create opportunities for individuals in your community looking to find a job and build skills, including veterans and military families, single mothers and many others.
Career Gear promotes the economic independence of low-income men by providing financial literacy training, a network of support, professional attire, career development tools, job-readiness and essential life-skills training that help men enter the workforce, stay employed and become role models and mentors to their families and communities.
