Donations Wish List

You can help by donating your new and gently worn women’s interview and work-appropriate clothing, shoes, accessories, makeup and personal care items. Your donations allow women to enter an interview, job training program, and/or new job with confidence. You can be part of the community that helps us serve over 2,600 women each year in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Each donation you make directly helps change women’s lives. All of your donations are tax deductible.
