Women in Media, a professional organization, is once again partnering with Kean’s Fine Dry Cleaning to host its annual Attire for Hire Clothing Drive to benefit local, disadvantaged women re-entering the workforce.

The clothing drive will be held from 9 a.m. until noon on Saturday, April 13, at the Kean’s Fine Dry Cleaning 8967 Jefferson Highway location in Baton Rouge.

The organization is seeking donations of gently used or new professional women’s clothing and accessories, including business suits, professional blouses, slacks, dresses, scarves, shoes and purses. 

The donated clothes go directly to organizations assisting women who struggle with financial issues, are victims of mental and physical abuse, and who are recovering from alcohol and drug addictions by providing counseling, therapy, education, job training and employment assistance.

In addition to more closet space, all donors will receive a coupon for $5 off at Kean’s Fine Dry Cleaning for their generosity.
