About the Event
When women access Dress for Success clothing services they are provided with a "confidence kit" which includes hygiene products. These products are either donations or purchased with donations and help support women in our community by allowing them to take a step forward towards a better future.
All donations can be dropped off at our clinic and will be given to the Dress for Success program.
In case you didn't know, here is some information on their program.
- 5000+ clothing items will be provided in 2023
- We are on track to serve 200+ women in 2023 through our dressing services, career programs and leadership programs. All of our services are provided at no cost.
- We currently receive referrals from 23 community partners and growing. Women are also welcome to self refer to access all of our services.
- We hold a Working Women’s Group twice per year for local women. This group provides access to a supportive, inspiring network and equips those involved with confidence, camaraderie and career development skills.
- Our research estimates that the need in our community will grow to nearly 800 clients per year by 2026.
- 22% of Canadians currently expect to rely on charities to meet their basic needs. (Imagine Canada, 2023 Giving Report)
- Research shows that x10 more women than men in Canada have fallen out of the labour force since 2020. (Statistics Canada, RBC Economics)
- Nearly 50% of the women we serve have children under the age of 18 living at home with them. We firmly believe that if you help a woman, you help her family and our community.
- The gender pay gap is worse for those who face multiple barriers including racialized women, Indigenous women and women with disabilities. (Mayser, Statistics Canada)
