    April 22, 2013 No comments

    Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson collected over 100 women’s suits for Dress for Success’ Send One Suit drive.  Secretary Lawson encouraged participants to donate one suit, one blouse and one monetary gift. 

    “Giving Hoosier women the ability to approach a job interview in a professional manner empowers them to move toward economic independence,” said Secretary Lawson.  “These contributions to Dress for Success Indianapolis are crucial to the aim of providing professional development to women.  I am thankful to all who supported our Send One Suit effort, and I’m thankful that Dress for Success is hard at work putting these contributions to their best and highest purpose.”

    Secretary Lawson invited other statewide offices and the Indiana General Assembly to participate. Secretary Lawson collected donations in her Statehouse office along with setting collection pick up spots around the Statehouse.

    All contributions will go to Dress for Success Indianapolis, an organization dedicated to promoting economic independence for women by providing professional attire, a network of support and career development tools. Donated suits go to central Indiana women who need professional attire for job interviews or new careers, empowering women in our community to be self-sufficient and successful in work and life. About 40 percent of Dress for Success Indianapolis’s annual suit needs are met through Send One Suit Week. All donations will be dropped off at Classic Cleaners in Castleton.
