To benefit THE GRACE INSTITUTE, NYC
Cleaning closets? - - Losing weight? -- Sick of your old suits?
Bring them to the First Annual SLANY FALL SUIT DRIVE
Women’s suits-- ALL SIZES, ALL SEASONS -- will be collected at the SLANY annual meeting to be held at Skadden Arps, Thursday evening, October 15.
We’d love even one suit from each member, to donate to the women students of the Grace Institute. The Grace program is a 100+ year old job training program for underserved women in NYC, providing computer and office skills to enable economic independence and empowerment.
The suits are needed as the women compete for internships, go on interviews, and attend the Job Fair held each semester at Grace. Since the Grace program is a full time commitment, 9-5, 5 days a week, these women are forfeiting an income to attend school, and many of them are single heads of households. So the $200.- $400. cost of a suit that will be worn one or two times is beyond their reach.
That’s where we come in!
So please- respond to our SOS and Save One Suit (or more!) for the women of The Grace Institute.
ALL SIZES….ALL SEASONS. (Women’s only, this year)
CLEAN, ON HANGARS IF AT ALL POSSIBLE.
JACKETS, BLAZERS AND SLACKS ACCEPTED, but please hang together as outfits.
And Thank You, from the women of The Grace Institute.
*Tax receipts will be mailed.
