Edina, Minn. – Oct. 29, 2013 – Beginning Nov. 15, 2013, Edina Realty offices will no longer serve as clothing donation drop-off sites.
“With the increase in real estate activity over the past year, it’s become more difficult for our offices to handle the large amount of clothing that’s donated to Dress for Success,” said Barb Jandric, president of Edina Realty. “But that doesn’t mean our support for this great organization has diminished. What they do to help women with career development is remarkable.”
Dress for Success Twin Cities helps women achieve economic independence by providing them with business-appropriate clothing and a network of support and career development tools.
“When we opened our Twin Cities office four years ago, Edina Realty was one of the first organizations to support us,” said Jeri Quest, CEO of Dress for Success Twin Cities. “Their support, along with that of the community, has allowed us to suit more than 2,000 women since 2010. We’re grateful for the tremendous amount of clothing that has been donated since the program was launched; however, our need for collection sites has decreased,” she said.
Dress for Success will continue accepting clothing donations by appointment only at their Twin Cities headquarters, located at 1549 University Ave., St. Paul. Dress for Success clients need suits, blazers, and interview-appropriate attire. Clothing must be clean and in nearly new condition.
