Employees Help Women Dress for Success in Honor of Women’s History Month
Colleagues at our corporate headquarters in West Palm Beach, Florida donated clothing and accessories to support Dress for Success Palm Beaches (DFSPB), a non-profit that provides both professional attire and personal development opportunities to women in the Palm Beach County area to help them gain financial independence and thrive in both work and life.
“Donating Clothing to Dress for Success was a simple way for us to help support other women to reach their goals,” said Susan Needham, Senior Director of Global Supply Chain, who donated to the clothing drive.
Employees filled collection boxes with donations of professional attire and accessories, including items such as blazers, blouses, pants and make-up.
“I donated because it makes me feel empowered to help other strong women,” said Tara Zapf, Procurement Assistant. “I feel passionately about women supporting other women.”
The professional attire donated by our employees will help give confidence to women interviewing for jobs on their journey to realizing their full potential.
The collection took place during the week of DFSPB’s annual “Style for Hope” fundraising luncheon, which highlighted the organization’s accomplishments from the prior year and its vision for the future.
Katherine Reed, Commercial Development Program Associate, who organized the clothing drive, represented Florida Crystals at the event. She was inspired by DFSPB’s clients who shared how transformational the organization was in their lives. In 2022 alone, DFSPB assisted more than 600 women in the greater Palm Beach County area.
