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 Friday, September 20, the Texas Chapter got together for a morning helping at the Loaves & Fishes Community First! Village in Austin. 13 volunteers helped with landscaping, housekeeping, and cleaning the community’s chicken coop.
The Community First! Village is a development of the Mobile Loaves & Fishes. The mobile kitchen continues to feed the homeless population in and around the city of Austin, while their Community First! Village provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for people coming out of chronic homelessness. People can rent RV trailers or small homes, and the community includes social assistance, employment opportunities, and opportunities to help with the mobile food distribution.
Thank you so much to the Chapter for organizing this event and for the volunteers who came out to help such a great cause! Visit the PLUS Foundation website for more information about Foundation activities.
