Dress for Success Southern Nevada Invites Everyone to “Support Our Girls” during Nevada’s Big Give, March 10
Dress for Success Southern Nevada invites Las Vegas to give where they live and “support our girls” during the 6th annual Nevada’s Big Give, which starts at midnight and goes until 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, March 10. During this 24-hour special online giving event, and in recognition of Women’s History Month in March, Dress for Success Southern Nevada, a local nonprofit that provides gently used professional clothing and career counseling services to disadvantaged women, shines a spotlight on product donations recently made by intimate apparel companies Vanity Fair® Lingerie and SPANX®. Their recent donations included more than 750 high quality bras and more than 250 pairs of SPANX.
“Our mission is to provide beautiful and gently used professional wardrobes to women entering the workforce for the first time or returning after a long period,” said Paula Lawrence, executive director, Dress for Success Southern Nevada. “While all our clothing and accessories are generously donated by our community, undergarments, such as bras, panties and hosiery, must be new for obvious health safety reasons. Outside of the rare donations made by wonderful partners like Vanity Fair and SPANX, necessities including intimates, have to be purchased with monetary donations such as those given on Nevada’s Big Give. There is no better time than now to help us ‘support our girls’ and offer our clients a ‘leg up’ during the next step of their career journey. Our goal is to make every client of Dress for Success Southern Nevada feel and look their very best, and that begins with good quality foundational undergarments.”
Donations made on Nevada’s Big Give start at $10. You may donate to Dress for Success Southern Nevada by visiting their page on Nevada’s Big Give website. Since Nevada’s Big Give started in 2011, over 15,000 donors have given nearly $2 million to hundreds of charities in just 96 hours of online giving.
