To start out the new year in support of community organizations, we are proud to announce our partnership with Dress for Success Mid-Fairfield County throughout January.
An affiliate of Dress for Success® Worldwide in New York City since 1998, the organization has served over 10,000 women in Fairfield County through its suite of career development programs.
The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
The mission of The WorkPlace is to develop a well-educated, well-trained and self-sufficient workforce in Southwestern Connecticut that can compete in the changing global marketplace.
We have two exciting opportunities for you to help this wonderful organization:
- Donate your loose change by depositing it into our Change for Change Parking Meter. It accepts quarters and dimes and when we tally up the total donations, Mellow Monkey will match the contribution.
- Throughout the month of January, we will be a Drop Off Location for lightly used or new professional clothing for women. Simply bring professional women's garments to donate to the store during our regular business hours and we'll get them to Dress for Success so that they can make them available to their clients in order to provide them with the confidence to enter or return to the workplace, make a great first impression and land a job that could change her life. Please be sure to review important criteria for donations BEFORE bringing them to the store.
However you decide to help, we thank you for your continued support for community organizations like this one.
