Three cheers for our good friends Betty Fox and Valerie Daugherty from Dress for Success who delivered a number of parcels containing warm winter clothing articles to Wayside Christian Mission. The HUGS donation drive (HUGS being an acronym for hats, umbrellas, gloves, socks or scarves) is just one of many ways that Betty, Valerie, and our local Dress for Success branch stands with Wayside Christian Mission.
Dress for Success is a faith-based organization that provides appropriate business attire for women seeking employment as well as assistance for women who need suitable clothing after being hired. Besides clothing, Betty and Valerie teach vocational classes and provide counseling for women who need advice with resumes and assistance in finding employment. Valerie and Betty have taught a number of classes for the women in our recovery program and have made themselves readily available to our ladies as they prepare to transition back into the community.
We are truly grateful to our friends from Dress for Success. This organization helps women through all phases of employment so that they can contribute to the betterment of our community.
