Community Clothes Closet
Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our donors, Union Bank and NAWBO-LA, we opened up a "Clothes Closet" at our Empowerment Centers for the families of our participants in April. As reported in the March newsletter story "Outfitted for Success", these two partners showed their support for the YWCA by donating clothes for the Job Corps students. After students picked out interview outfits and other necessary clothing, there was still a surplus of clothes. This surplus became a "Clothes Closet" and families were given the opportunity to shop and take whatever items they needed. Items included all sizes and types of clothing... even shoes!
Thank you again to Union Bank and NAWBO-LA for helping in such a practical and special way!
