Educational Opportunity Fund Presents: Attire for HireMany professionals have some business suits and other work clothes that are no longer needed. So instead of throwing them out, this program will allow them to donate both men and women’s work attire (if in good condition). We will then distribute the clothing to students in need of such attire within the EOF program. This program will allow students to acquire suits, shoes and accessories to wear on job interviews, business meetings, etc. In addition, a there will be a tailor or seamstress at the event so students who are curious about finding out their measurements, can do so in at the program.12/14/2017
