Agency seeking clothes donations for job-seekers

CareerSource Capital Region is asking the local community to assist career-seekers in their job search efforts by donating gently-used professional and casual clothing and shoes.

Through its Clothes for Careers initiative, CareerSource Capital Region partners with local community thrift stores — such as Goodwill of the Big Bend and City Walk Urban Mission — to provide disadvantaged career-seekers in Gadsden, Leon and Wakulla counties access to free professional attire for hiring fairs, job interviews and the workplace.

CareerSource Capital Region CEO Jim McShane hoped that as people in the community begin their spring cleaning that they will consider donating their gently-used clothing to Clothes for Careers.

McShane said that every donation helps a local career-seeker make a positive first impression as they interview for jobs.

McShane said these donations truly make an impact in the lives of local career-seekers.

Clothing and shoe donations of all kinds will be accepted at CareerSource Capital Region locations in Quincy (1140 W. Clark Street), Tallahassee and Crawfordville during normal business hours through April 30.

For more information, or to make a financial donation to the Clothes for Careers initiative, call (850) 875-4040.
