NEW YORK (WLNY) – Each year thousands of women are unable to secure employment because they don’t have access to appropriate ensembles to wear on job interviews.

Women’s clothing store dressbarn is teaming up with the non-profit organization, Dress for Success, to gather 60,000 articles of clothing, as part of its S.O.S. (Send One Suit) Weekend donation drive, March 7-10.

Dress For Success VP of Communications, Kelly Beaty, joined us on The Couch to tell us about the annual campaign.

This year’s clothing drive marks the 11th consecutive year dressbarn and Dress for Success have partnered to help women in need receive professional business attire. All 825 dressbarn stores across the country will serve as drop-off sites for new or gently used professional attire including suits, dress shirts, blazers, pants, dresses and shoes that will be used to benefit women seeking to transition into the workforce.
