Fashion Sorting Party with Dress for Success! (age 16+) *Impact Week*

The mission of Dress for Success Oregon is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

At our Fashion Sorting Party, the goal is to process as many clothing donations as possible, in preparation to be given to clients. Come lend a hand by helping us:
- Sort clothing donations to appropriate channels
- Inspect clothing for quality
- Steam and iron clothing
- Size clothing and shoes

Volunteers will be instructed on the clothing sorting guidelines and procedures upon arrival. Volunteers should be comfortable lifting or moving boxes, bags, or garments.
Please come with clothing and shoes that are comfortable enough to be physically active in (Tasks may include bending and lifting). Closed-toed shoes are required.

Bring your positive attitude, your flexibility, your organization-skills, and a desire to help!
Recommended for volunteers who have a love for organization and can tolerate a small space with many donations, but limited resources.
Follow all COVID safety-rules at their volunteer site or project
Wash their hands, at a minimum, before and after their volunteering
Casual attire and closed toe shoes. If you're coming with a team, feel free to wear a company shirt!
