Here at the UWS Career & Internship Center, we want our students to feel confident and prepared as they are attend career fairs and interviews or start new jobs and internships. For some, the workplace attire component of feeling confident and prepared can prove prohibitively expensive, and we want to help.
On April 3rd, we’re hosting our second ‘Dress for Success’ pop-up event where students can come ‘shop’ for clothes to support their job and internship search process, free of charge and with the support of Career & Internship Center staff members. At our inaugural event in October 2019, we had over 300 students visit and take home professional clothing!
We know you already make incredible contributions of time and resources to the University of Washington community, but we’re hopeful you might help us continue this successful initiative. We’re looking for help in the following areas:
- Donations of new or gently used clothes. Click here for a list of suggested items.
- Donations of funds (no amount too small!). Click here to donate. Career & Internship Center team members will be thrifting in the weeks leading up to the event to fill clothing gaps and ensure that a diversity of item type and size are available for shoppers at the pop-up.
- Share this donation opportunity with your networks. We’d love your help in spreading the word!
Donations are accepted beginning today, and until Friday, March 20th. Donations can be dropped off at the Career & Internship Center in 134 Mary Gates Hall anytime between 8am-5pm, Monday-Friday (excluding Monday, February 17th’s Presidents Day holiday).
Thank you for considering, and for all that you already do to support our Huskies! Questions? Please don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
