Help women get ahead in a professional environment by donating your gently-used women’s business clothing at any Madison area Klinke Cleaners. Suited for Success helped 350 area women in 2012 and is looking to help more in 2013.
Klinke Cleaners, Wisconsin Women in Government and the YWCA are teaming up again to bring you the 11th annual Suited for Success program. Through this program, women who want to help others on their path to success can donate their gently used clothing to any Klinke Cleaners location between April 15th and April 26th. And Klinke Cleaners will clean, press, and deliver the clothes to the YWCA.
In the past, especially 2012, Klinke Cleaners patrons were exceptionally generous. YWCA CEO, Rachel Krinsky, said that “350 women utilized this service last year in order to find and keep employment to support themselves and their families. “ It’s a phenomenal way to lighten your wardrobe by giving away clothing you don’t wear anymore and to help someone else get back on their feet.
Your donations help empower women, build confidence and give them the first impression appearance they need for a job interview. The Suited for Success Boutique accepts professional clothing, scarves, jewelry, shoes, purses, pantyhose, new make-up and shopping bags with handles. Between April 15th and April 26th you can drop off your professional clothing for donation and Klinkes will take care of the cleaning and delivery for you. If you have items other than clothing to donate, please visit the YWCA Empowerment Center in Madison.
