The Career Closet
The Career Closet provides free professional attire to low-income job seekers. Clients are referred to this program from numerous social service and career assistance organizations in the area. Many people simply cannot afford to purchase the professional attire needed to obtain better jobs. This program helps to break that cycle. Volunteers assist each client in choosing outfits from a large selection of gently worn clothing and accessories that have been donated by caring individuals throughout the South Shore.
These clients also receive a gift certificate to have their hair cut or styled at Allure Spa in Quincy to help build their self-esteem and confidence which are imperative attributes when searching for employment.
Help job seekers and donate today! You can make a difference by donating current, in style clothing suitable for the workplace. Donations should be clean, pressed and ready to wear. Some appropriate items include: skirts, dresses, blouses, men’s suits, dress shirts, slacks, khakis, polo shirts, ties, shoes, etc. Donations can be dropped off at Interfaith’s office 8:30 am-3:30 pm, Monday – Friday, and until 7:00 pm on Tuesdays.
Volunteer! We are looking for volunteers to assist Career Closet clients. If you are interested please contact Paula Daniels at 617-773-6203 ext. 28.
