Dress for Success Clothing Drive
Clean out your closets and help ASTD Las Vegas make an impact in the lives of local women. Bring your gently used business clothing to our next chapter meeting on March 15, where it will be donated to Dress for Success of Southern Nevada. The person who brings the most items to donate will receive a free registration to our April chapter meeting.
Dress for Success promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support, and career development tools to help them thrive in work and in life.
We will accept the following items for donation:
- Coordinated, contemporary, interview-appropriate skirt and pant suits
- Beautiful, crisp blouses
- Gorgeous blazers and jackets
- Professional shoes (especially sizes 11 and up)
- Practical and professional handbags and briefcases
- Professional Coats for all seasons, shapes and sizes
- Plus size clothing or gift cards to Plus Size Clothing Stores
- Perfume samples (unused)
- Pad folios/pens/paper (Interview materials)
Items should be new or nearly-new and cleaned. Think about what you would wear to a job interview. That is exactly the type of clothing Dress for Success distributes to their clients. Your fabulous suits and other professional apparel could furnish another woman with the confidence to enter or return to the workplace, make a great first impression and land a job that could change her life.
Gentlemen, if you have business clothing you would like to donate, you may also bring it to our March meeting. We are partnering with Dress for Success to find a good home for them.

Financial donations to Dress for Success will also be accepted at the door.
