Mid-State class seeks donations of business clothing

Metro Wire Staff

Students at Mid-State Technical College will soon open a clothing drive aimed at helping others jumpstart their careers.

The college’s Administrative Office Procedures class is coordinating the business/career attire clothing drive starting March 25. Clothing donations will be given to individuals during the school’s Dress 4 Success event in April to jumpstart the job interview process and their new career.

The community is invited to make donations of gently used men’s and women’s business clothing during the drive, March 25 through April 22.

Acceptable items include men’s and women’s business suits, dress pants or khakis, shirts, blouses, polo shirts, ties, skirts, dresses, dress shoes (like-new only), new colored dress socks and accessories such as jewelry, purses, belts, coats or jackets.

Collection boxes are located in the Student Services & Information Center at Mid-State’s campuses in Adams, Marshfield, Stevens Point, and Wisconsin Rapids. More information is provided at mstc.edu/clothingdrive.
