Help Your Neighbors Dress for Success

Your Rotary Club Can Help Job Seekers in Your Area Start Their Future Careers!

For many job seekers, the cost of business attire is an obstacle to their seeking gainful employment.  Donations of business attire help job seekers in your area dress appropriately to interviews and positions in corporate careers.  We’re excited to announce the Career Closet Collection, a new joint project between Rotary District 5280 and Goodwill Southern California that aims to eliminate this hurdle for job seekers in our communities.

Set a date for club members to bring their new or gently used business attire to a club meeting or nearby location. Examples of business attire needed are below.

Men’s Attire

Formal suits
Business shirts

Leather dress shoes

Women’s Attire

Formal business blouses
Dressy jackets & sweaters
Dress pants & skirts

After collecting your club’s donation, we’re asking that your club:
