LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – If you’ve been thinking about cleaning your wardrobe, here’s a great incentive. Many people in the Las Vegas Valley are returning to work and in need of appropriate clothing.
Lightly worn work clothes, which you might not wear anymore, could help someone look their best for an interview or even land a job after 18 months which are very difficult for many people.
HELP from the Workforce Services Department of Southern Nevada helps people re-enter the workforce and part of that involves a visit to their clothing store where donated clothing is given to customers.
Christina Sewell, manager of the Workforce Services program, says there are seminars and workshops to offer career advice and even help land interviews.
“Help me get the experience I need to talk to people. They work on communication; how you are supposed to act while working and how to be able to help yourself, ”said Sophia Bermudez, HELP of Southern Nevada client.
HELP is turning to the community this week as National Used Wardrobe Day is Wednesday, August 25.
Currently, HELP of Southern Nevada is in need of second-hand work clothing, such as women’s clothing for plus size and small, women’s flat dress shoes, men’s polo shirts, white shirts, and black pants. Accessories and men’s ties are also needed.
