Spring Summer Cleaning

Ladies, time to clean out your closets! On Tuesday, the Mystics will be partnering with the wonderful local organization Suited for Change, which at no charge provides "professional clothing and ongoing career and life skills education to low-income women to increase their employment and job retention potential and to contribute to their economic independence." Since it was founded in 1992, Suited for Change "has helped more than 14,500 area women transition into the workforce."

At this Tuesday's game against the Sun, you can help Suited for Change help low-income women in our area "by donating new or gently used professional attire (handbags, suits, blouses, pants, blazers, shoes & accessories)." The Mystics will be ready for your donations with collection boxes at the Phone Booth.

Suited for Change is most in need of "handbags and interview appropriate clothing in size 0s and sizes 16 - 26. White and solid color blouses in all sizes, earrings, necklaces & scarves help [their] volunteers put together outfits that instill confidence and hope in local women who use [their] services to prepare for interviews and new jobs. All donated attire must be in good condition, in style, suitable for a business interview, and if a clothing item, preferably on hangers." For more information about Suited for Change, visit their web site, here.

The BCs think it's great that the Mystics are assisting such a worthy organization. We hope you can help too!
