14 May Interview-Ready Outfits for Woman Re-entering the Workforce
Lives Impacted: 100+
At XO Factor, in Tampa, FL, our mission is to assist former inmates and their families find stable employment to help stabilize the family after incarceration. We are also working with the City of Tampa Housing Authority on a program helping to eliminate poverty.
We received a donation of women’s apparel from Torrid, which was great for the ladies that we serve! Each resident at the public housing property was allowed to pick out clothing for themselves. There was plenty to choose from and the extras were put in a clothing closet for case managers to give out as interviews come along.
We supply over 400 residents with workshops to help build skills for employment. This donation from Torrid creates options for every size woman that needed appropriate clothing for an interview or job. When you look good, you feel good and this donation certainly made these ladies feel good. A woman named Ms. Iman told us, “This is the first time in years that I will look interview ready. Clothes are just so expensive.” Thank you Torrid and Good360!
