Organization of the Month: Dress for Success Oregon

One of the things I love about being part of the Bolt team is really feeling like we are a part of the neighborhood. I enjoy knowing many of my customers by name, and can’t help smiling when they report having successfully completed a project. I hear this often: “I live in this neighborhood, and it’s so nice that you are near-by.” It always makes my day! And that sense of belonging extends to our larger community as well.

As a way of saying thanks, we are kicking off a series of fund raraisers for local non-profits this Saturday, Jan. 27. A portion of the day’s proceeds will go to Dress for Success Oregon, whose mission is “to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.” I really admire their committment to empowering women.

If you have been planning a project, or need a little inspiration, this would be a great day to shop and know that your purchase is helping support the important work of this organization.
