    Sorry Ladies but I have to relinquish my spot for tomorrow's meet-up. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause the group.

    Hi Ladies, We will be helping Dress for Success with a. sorting clothes and b. assisting shoppers with selecting outfits. 6 ppl will sort and 6 ppl will assist with shopping/work the sales floor. If you have a preference, please post whether you’d like to sort or shop it in the comments below. The shoppers need to dress in business casual attire; sorters should wear comfortable clothing.

    Please note that parking in the area may be a challenge. There is metered parking on some of the nearby streets and the nearby lots range in price from $10-$20. We’ll be on 12th between Race and Vine... and that's generally a tough area for parking. The Broad Street Line is a 5-minute walk away.

      Hey Vinita, Dress for Success sent a notice saying that the store will not be open to shopping clients on the day that we're scheduled to volunteer. This means that all volunteers will be sorting through donations, taking inventory, and organizing the boutique's sales floor. See you on Saturday!
