Dress for Success: Business suits needed

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

(WFLX) - A worldwide organization helping women dress for success says it is busier than ever.

Sonia Jacobson is dressing people in need for free. Her company provides one free outfit to women who have a job interview lined up. Then, another one once they land the job.

Her office is so busy, she says, she can't keep up. "We are turning people away. We really are. We just don't have the capacity. We don't have the manpower. We don't have the funds to really meet the demand.

"When we get a phone call from a woman that's crying, her husband just left. She lost her job. She can't afford to go out and buy clothes. She needs to find a job immediately. How can we say no to that?"

Dress for Success relies solely on donations. There are two locations in our area: one in Boca Raton and one in Lake Park.
