Teachers Invited To Dress For Success

Dress for Success Palm Beaches (DFSPB) is offering local female teachers an unbeatable back to school bargain: a free head-to-toe workplace outfit.

For this newly created Teacher Appreciation Shopping Experience, a DFSPB personal shopper will be assigned to those who reserve an appointment for Tuesday, July 27; Friday, July 30; or Tuesday, Aug. 3 at the nonprofit’s boutique at 2459 S. Congress Ave., Suite 204. Appointments also are available on Wednesday, July 28 at DFSPB’s new branch in Belle Glade, located at 1089 South Main Street. This added location will have its official grand opening ceremony on Wednesday, July 21 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with ribbon-cutting festivities.

“Teachers have been unwavering in their commitment to our kids throughout the pandemic, and we wanted to share some of our great fortune of generously donated clothing with these tireless frontline workers,” DFSPB Executive Director Mary Hart said. “Closet-cleaning and purging was a popular at-home pandemic activity, and it has contributed to the swelling of our racks and displays of dresses, suits, skirts, slacks, tops, shoes, handbags and jewelry. It’s allowing us to extend our gratitude to the community’s teachers while we continue to serve the clients referred to us for job readiness counseling and, of course, for the all-important job interview attire and, ultimately, full workplace wardrobe.”

To reserve an appointment, teachers should call (561) 249-3898. For more information, visit www.dressforsuccesspb.org.
