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:
