Element Six, a women’s clothing boutique in Eagle Village Shops in Wayne, will be hosting an apparel drive to benefit Dress for Success Philadelphia from January 26 through February 1.
The clothing donated will be used to support underprivileged women in their job interview process. In appreciation, a $50 Element Six Gift Card will be provided to customers who make a donation.
Dress for Success Philadelphia is an international non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing them with professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to thrive in work and in life.
Opening their doors in October of 2013, Element Six is a new boutique seeking to break the stereotype of sustainable and ethically traded clothing by offering high quality, contemporary fashion from designers who are committed to enhancing social responsibility in the fashion industry.
Element Six is one of the first companies to be newly incorporated as a Pennsylvania Benefit Corporation and has strong values of commitment to the community, both locally and globally.
Dress for Success Philadelphia can only accept new, or nearly new, women’s suits, skirts, slacks, professional maternity wear, shoes, scarves, handbags and jewelry. If the donations are appropriate to wear to a job interview, they’ll take it.
If you are unable to donate clothing, a monetary donation in the form of a check made out to Dress for Success Philadelphia will go directly toward the purchase of new clothing and shoes to aid in completing a woman’s interview or new job wardrobe. All donations are tax-deductible. Element Six will deliver all donated items to Dress for Success Philadelphia following the apparel drive.
