Women's Committee celebrates successful Dress For Success clothing drive

The Oregon AFSCME Women's Committee recently collected several boxes of women's clothing to benefit the registered non-profit agency Dress For Success Oregon.

 

Theresia Lloyd-Siemer of Local 328 (OHSU) spearheaded the Women's Committee's involvement. Lloyd-Siemer says Dress for Success promotes economic independence for disadvantaged women by providing professional attire and other career development tools to help women in work and life.

 

Clothes were collected primarily in the Portland and Salem AFSCME offices. Beth Peccia of Local 88 (Multnomah County) gathered all of the donations and made the delivery to Dress For Success on behalf of the committee.

 

Council 75 Secretary Annette Skillman of Local 2376 (Corrections Security Plus) notes that an additional $50 in cash was collected from individual donors. That $50 was matched by the Women's Committee, and in turn, that $100 was matched upon Skillman's request by the Council 75 Executive Board, so Dress For Success received $200 in addition to the collected clothing.

 

Dress For Success accepts donations year-round; there's more information available on the Dress For Success Oregon website.
