We Support Dress for Success Houston
Stevenson & Murray proudly supports the work of Dress for Success Houston.
March is Send One Suit month, a drive to support the organization’s mission to help women achieve economic independence so they can thrive in work and life. Established in 2000, the annual campaign encourages businesses and groups in greater Houston to donate money and gently used women’s career clothing and accessories.
In addition to professional clothing, the campaign seeks to collect 3,500 black handbags, 4,000 pairs of closed-toe shoes, 2,400 professional portfolios and 1,000 scarves. Dress for Success uses donations collected this month to provide career clothing and accessories free of charge to women who need help throughout the entire year.
“Our programs equip women with the tools they need to maintain employment and grow in their careers,” Nancy Levicki, the organization’s president and co-founder, said at the campaign’s kickoff event. “A suit may become outdated, but the skills women learn from our programs can last a lifetime.”
“It’s an easy decision to support an organization that helps empower Houston-area women with stronger work skills and better career paths,” said Mark Murray at Stevenson & Murray. “These women’s stories are more than inspiring, and we’re thrilled our contribution can help more women overcome hardship and thrive in our area.”
Many taking part in this year’s programs are U.S. veterans who have successfully transitioned from military service to civilian life. In addition to providing interview-appropriate clothing, Dress for Success offers career services such as job retention and career advancement coaching and professional development.
