Professional Clothing To Assist St. Joseph the Worker

 

 Recently Jaburg Wilk held a professional clothing drive to aid in replenishing The Career Clothing Closet at St. Joseph the Worker.  The closet provides hygiene and clothing to men and women to help them transition into quality employment. Items are given to clients preparing for job interviews, starting new employment, or attending job training.   More than 200 items of gently used professional clothing were collected.  The clothing included business suits for men and women, dress shirts and ties, slacks, dresses, blouses, skirts and shoes in various sizes.    

Jaburg Wilk has provided on-going support to St. Joseph the Worker.  The most recent drive is another example of their continued investment.  The sole mission of St. Joseph the Worker is to assist economically deprived individuals become self-sufficient with the reassurance, tools, and support needed to secure quality employment.  In their most recent fiscal year 14-15, they assisted 2,701 clients return to work.
