Ladies helping ladies

"You get what you give".

I love that saying and it is an appropriate one for what is starting today and running through this weekend.

It's the 'Send One Suit Weekend' donation drive.

You can donate a suit or other dress items to Dressbarn, who will in turn give it to our local "Dress for Success" program.

That's where the "you get what you give" concept comes in.

"Dress for Success" provides business clothes for local ladies who are unemployed and looking for a job.  In a nutshell, "Dress for Success" empowers these ladies to put their best foot forward when they walk into an interview.  It's a huge confidence builder for these ladies and it works!

So here's what you can do:

Today through Sunday you can drop off new and gently-worn suits, dress shirts, skirts, pants, shoes, belts, blouses, blazers, etc. at area Dress Barn stores.

You will get a 15 percent off coupon and tax credit provided for the donation.

Here's the kicker: Dress Barn will match one new item for every donated item!

The goal nationwide is to collect 60,000 professional clothing items.....just imagine the benefits for the women who will get what you give!
