Dress for Success Pittsburgh
Thank you to everyone who has donated clothing,
and accessories in support of the Black Law Student Association's (BLSA) Dress for Success-Pittsburgh (DFSP) clothing drive.
Please consider giving a clothing or monetary donation by December 18, which will give a well-deserved woman the Christmas gift of an outfit and accessories so that she can begin the new year with a job and new outlook on life.
The mission of DFSP is to promote 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.
BLSA will continue to accept donations of business attire (this includes business casual wear), accessories,
and gently used cosmetics for African-American women. We will also be taking monetary donations that will go directly to DFSP to keep their doors open and to sustain their employment retention programs.
Feel free to contact Christy Gamble,
if you have any questions or monetary donations.
