Stewardship in Action - Dress for Success

McGladrey's Minneapolis Women's Leadership group held a clothing drive to benefit the Twin Cities Dress for Success organization throughout the month of January. This donation drive collected gently-used suits, other business-appropriate apparel, shoes and accessories like handbags and jewelry. This drive was McGladrey's way of supporting women in our community to help them take the crucial first step towards a better future.

Dress for Success promotes the economic independency of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

The generosity of McGladrey employees and their family members donated enough clothing to fill a large SUV! In a thank you note from Dress for Success, the organization said, "Thank you McGladrey very much for providing Dress for Success Twin Cities with so many high quality items and accessories from your recent drive. You were able to collect so many wonderful items that we will use in our Suiting Program, which will allow us to help some of the 800 women who will come through our doors this year. Your donations help us continue to help economically disadvantaged women in our community become employed. It is gratifying work and we deeply appreciate the partnership and support of McGladrey."

McGladrey employee's commitment to the community is truly outstanding and we look forward to partnering with Dress for Success again for future events!
