H.O.W! for Christmas - Day 19

Last night, we saw 17 clients come through our doors - with 6 of them coming in for an employment suiting (they secured employment and get to pick out a small working wardrobe. With the clients, plus the 14 volunteers on shift, there was much hustle and bustle, all to the xmas tunes playing on the radio.

This week, the volunteers were able to play Santa to all the clients, giving them each a wrapped present to take home with them. The donation we received from Smart Brands in the summer time provided over 70 gifts (bath and makeup sets) to provide each client.

Merry Christmas, from the staff and volunteers at Dress for Success Vancouver. We will take a break from the H.O.W! for Christmas campaign posting for the 24th and 25th and resume on December 26th, 2011. Have a safe and happy holiday this weekend!

In the month of December, we will be sharing the stories, experiences and t
riumphs of clients who have used our programing. And during these 25 days (December 5 - 31), we are campaigning to raise enough funds to put at least 25 more women through our programming.

To give one women access to the whole suite of programs at Dress for Success Vancouver, it costs the organization approximately $150 ($12.50 a month). Help us raise $3750 by donating this holiday season or giving the gift of a donation.
