Clean out your closets for a great cause :: Dress for Success

As we look forward to warmer weather and clean out those winter closets, consider donating appropriate interview/career clothing to those seeking employment.

Donations will be accepted for Peoria Friendship House’s “Dress for Success” Program now through Wednesday, April 30. In addition to interview and career-wear items, please also consider donating travel-sized bottles of shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, soap, lotion and laundry detergent.

Place your contributions in sacks or simply place them in the boxes at one of these drop-off locations:

  • East Peoria Campus: Info Desk, Faculty Resource Center (239B), Social Sciences Lounge (220D)
  • Downtown Campus: Thomas 203 (Faculty Lounge)
  • North Campus: Cedar Hall Registration Area
