|New York, NY–Dress for Success, the international non-profit organization which assists disadvantaged women by providing professional attire and employment retention services, is partnering with Loehmann’s, the national off-price specialty retailer in a week-long nationwide effort to supply thousands of women in need with career suits. This relationship marks the second year that Loehmann’s has undertaken a charitable campaign with Dress for Success. |
Loehmann’s customers are encouraged to donate a new, or nearly-new career-appropriate suit at a Loehmann’s store during the week of October 2-8th. As a thank you to donors, Loehmann’s will take 10% off the purchase of a new career suit.
In addition, Loehmann’s will contribute 500 new suits to Dress for Success, thereby addressing one of the organization’s most crucial needs. “We are pleased to join the Dress for Success organization in their efforts to assist women in need”, said Fred Forcellati, Vice President of Advertising for Loehmann’s.
Ten of Dress for Success’ 74 U.S. affiliates, as Dress for Success locations are called, will be part of this campaign and will benefit from Loehmann’s generosity. Joi Gordon, Chief Executive Officer of Dress for Success Worldwide, notes the impact that this effort will have on the women the organization serves.
“As a result of the support from Loehmann’s and their generous customers, thousands of our clients will move one step closer to a new life of self-sufficiency and success – and it all begins with the suit,” said Ms. Gordon. “We are delighted that our affiliates-and, more importantly, the women we serve-will benefit tremendously.”
