Dress for Success is a wonderful organization that helps women from all backgrounds and situations, sometimes traumatic, get back on their feet and into the work world so they can take care of themselves. An important step for them is to feel confident and that means look put together. If you would like to volunteer at Dress for Success one day or many, please contact Lindsey and let her know. It’s actually pretty fun and feels great to use your skills and give back to help your community. This is a special event that they are looking for volunteers for outside of their usual need. Please contact Lindsey if you are available and interested in helping out. Here is the info:
DFSO Hair and Makeup Volunteers,
I hope you’re all doing well! I wanted to let you know about a volunteer need we have for professional hair stylists and makeup artists to assist us with client photoshoots next month on February 12th and February 13th. Through an exciting new partnership between DFSO and Treehouse, a technology education company, we have launched a new program called TalentPath. This program teaches women how to code in a 7-month online education program, upon the completion of which they will have created a portfolio of 10 projects and have earned a TechDegree, a nationally-recognized professional certification in a coding language. As a perk for our very first cohort of 12 women participating in this program, we are offering them the opportunity to have professional headshots taken to be used as they brave this journey of pursuing a new career. These women come from all different backgrounds, and many of them may never have had the chance to get glammed up and have professional headshots taken. We would love your help in making this photoshoot special and meaningful for these women by getting their hair styled and makeup done professionally.
The times we are in need of support are as follows. Please note: you do not need to commit to the full 4-6 hours. Please specify how many hours and in what time frame you would like to volunteer.
Tuesday, February 12th: 1-6P
Wednesday, February 13th: 11-6P
Tuesday, February 12th: 2-7P
Wednesday, February 13th: 12-7P
If you’re interested in more information or would like to sign up to volunteer please contact me directly. Additionally, if you have any contemporaries in your field that might be interested in helping please feel free to relay this email.
Thank you again for your support!
