We're excited to be working with Dress for Success of Northern NJ - an amazing organization that helps outfit low-income women and support them in their job search.
As an international organization, Dress for Success empowers women worldwide to achieve economic independence through providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools needed to succeed. DFS provides more than just a new outfit, they believe every woman has the right to realize her full potential and the confidence and support she receives carries with her forever.
To kick off our partnership, the Aerosoles team spent the day volunteering with the Dress for Success team in Madison, NJ. Along with donating over 200 pairs of shoes, we spent the day organizing donations.
These donations were part of Dress for Success’ fall excess inventory sale, where items that are not donated to DFS clients are sold to the public to raise money for the organization.
We had such a great time, and helped to raise almost $7,000 towards serving women in need.
The team took another trip to the Northern NJ Dress for Success headquarters in December to volunteer at their Winter pop-up sale. We set up the sale space, created "holiday outfit bundles," complete with a full outfit and accessories, and organized the donations that would not be featured in the sale, which would help outfit local women in need.
We're looking forward to our next opportunity to work with this amazing organization in the Spring!
