Opportunity to donate professional clothes:
This is Maddie LaDue, an undergraduate student at Oregon State University – College of Business. Currently, I am in a business class working on a project called Dress for Success. Our goal is to collect business professional attire
to rent out and sell in Benny’s Business Closet at Oregon State University. This term we will be holding a huge sale of the clothes to promote the business closet and then next term we will be organizing a fashion show to teach students how to properly wear the attire. The aim of the Closet is to
make professional attire readily available to students who have interviews, networking events, or other social commitments who wouldn’t normally be able to afford or have access to professional dress. My request is that you and your colleagues would be willing to donate your unused or unwanted professional attire from your field of work.
