The holidays are a time of giving and good will. Each year, thousands of good Samaritans across America come together to donate clothes, toys, food, and time to worthy charitable organizations. One such organization caters to women right here in Florida. Dress For Success is an organization that focuses on helping women succeed in the workplace. They take on initiatives such as reviewing resumes, conducting interview training, providing career development, and providing interview attire. They have around 125 locations across the US, including one in greater Orlando. Karen, a representative from DFS summarized their mission as, "empowering disadvantaged women in our area to gain employment and improve the quality of life for them and their families."

They are always looking for donations such as suits and makeup, in addition to monetary donations from charitable givers who have some extra cash. For those who can't donate items or money, however, there is still an opportunity to donate time.

To find out about volunteer opportunities with DFS Orlando, you can visit them at http://www.dressforsuccess.org/Orlando. A representative from DFS will contact you with some more information on how to become a volunteer. You can also find out about general information on the organization, including more info on how and what to donate, on their main website at http://www.dressforsuccess.org. This holiday season, think about making an impact in your community and consider making a donation of time or supplies to a worthy cause like Dress for Success. This is a gift that keeps on giving, empowering women to help themselves in their careers for years to come. It's a wonderful way to provide independence to disadvantaged women, which helps not only the individuals whose lives you touch, but also our community as a whole. This organization helps women to enter or re-enter the workforce by providing them the guidance and materials they need to be confident and prepared. They rely on your donations and time to succeed.

Whether you choose to donate time, money, old items, or even just spread the word, your donations will be greatly appreciated by the women in your community.
