Women's business clothing donations needed

By  | 

HOUGHTON, Mich. (WLUC) - Michigan Tech seeks women's business clothing donations for their semi-annual Free Sale. Donations help provide students with business attire for the fall career fair.

Sizes 12 and up are particularly needed this year. Donations can be dropped off at the Van Pelt and Opie Library front desk and Jeannie DeClerk's office (219), the Lakeshore Center Pat Muller’s office (320 A1), the Academic Office Building first floor and Latika Gupta’s office (128), Dillman Hall Tess Ahlborn's office (108A), and Meese Center Susan Amato-Henderson's office (107).

Female faculty member Dr. Amy Lark began the free sale five years ago due to limited local options for women's business attire.

"It has become kind of a passion of mine and I think the reason why is because when you see those students stand taller, look a little prouder and realize that they do look wonderful and their gratefulness that they have when they are leaving is just, I think, what inspires us to keep going," said Susan Amato-Henderson, Cognitive and Learning Sciences Department chair.

The Free Sale is Saturday, September 29 at 11 a.m. in the Meese Center. Volunteers are welcome. For more information, contact Tess Ahlborn via email at tess@mtu.edu.
