One full month of our 50 for 50 campaign is in the books!
The latest piece of our campaign, which celebrates our 50th year in business by giving back to the community with 50 Acts of Gratitude, has been holding a month-long clothing drive for My Brother’s Closet. My Brother’s Closet is a fantastic organization put together by The Columbus Urban League that provides appropriate interview attire to low-income, male, ex-offenders who are enrolled in a workforce initiative program.
As a leader in the staffing and human resource business, the mission of an organization like My Brother’s Closet is something that we hold especially dear. Acloché conducts hundreds of interviews a year, so we understand the importance of a candidate being able to present themselves in a professional manner. However, we also understand that every person who walks through our doors has a different story and comes from a unique background. Sometimes, this means not always having access to the attire, coaching, and encouragement necessary for interviews, which is why we are thrilled to work with an organization like My Brother’s Closet, which strives to improve the odds of success and long-term stability among those who strive to achieve it.
“We’ve been very familiar with the incredible work that My Brother’s Closet, and on a broader scale the Columbus Urban League as a whole, has been doing for some time now. They are the kind of organization that truly cares about promoting and fostering the success of individuals in the same communities that we serve,” says Sherri Bryant, Acloché Regional Director.
Next month, Acloché will be holding a clothes drive for Dress for Success Columbus, a non-profit organization that empowers women to achieve their goals through free-of-charge Suiting, Career Center, and Employment Retention programs.
