On Tuesday, October 29, the Northern California Chapter held a volunteer event at the San Francisco arm of Dress for Success. This organization helps women seeking assistance with returning to employment, providing outfits for job interviews, support with resumes and interviewing preparation, and continuing support for women who gain employment.
Eleven volunteers came to help out Dress for Success. Some volunteers worked as personal shoppers in the Dress for Success boutique, helping clients choose outfits for upcoming job interviews, while others helped sort and prepared clothing donated to the boutique. Some volunteers even helped with resume reviews and coaching on interviewing techniques.
The PLUS Foundation donated $1,000 to Dress for Success to help this organization continue helping support and empower women. Thank you to the Chapter and to the volunteers who came out to help!
Last Thursday, October 10, volunteers from the Southeast Chapter headed to the JCS Café, a drop-in center for senior citizens. They helped decorate the Café in preparation for Thanksgiving and Halloween, as well as interviewed regular attendees, baked, and painted.

On Thursday, October 3, the Southwest Chapter hosted its Women’s Leadership Network Breakfast in Denver. Over 50 people came to hear Janice Sinden, CEO & President of the Denver Center for Performing Arts, speak on leadership, challenges and change. As the first female CEO & President of the DCPA, Ms. Sinden is no stranger to a fast-paced, politically-charged work environment. She spoke on the diversity of her career path and how it allowed her to pursue her personal passions, broadened her cultural experiences, and allowed her to give back to her community through her interest in politics.
