Dress for Success

Last semester the Graduate Women in Science (GWIS), here at Penn State, tried to organize a clothing drive to support Dress for Success, but it turned into a much larger drive, where we collected over 40 boxes of clothes (ranging from winter coats to swimsuits) that we donated to the Goodwill.

Well, now it is looking like maybe we had better pursue our original goal. Apparently Dress for Success, like all other charitable organizations, is having a tough time, losing funding and support nationwide, in a time when we desperately need to encourage everyone in their efforts to find employment. 

Surely we can't all have our dream jobs, but those of us fortunate enough to have some sort of consistent employment, might be able to take some time to support those who don't.
