Organisers of a monthlong clothing drive held by AtWater Consulting Ltd. said it has been a huge success.
Struck by the need in the community to see people with professional work attire, AtWater held its first Professional First Impressions women’s clothing drive.
According to AtWater, around 1,000 items of clothing, 130 pairs of shoes, 35 handbags and a myriad of accessories were collected.
The items will be dispersed among Children and Family Services, the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre and Passport2Success’ single-mother programme to provide participants with the appropriate attire to help them secure employment.
“We could not have anticipated the immense support we received from individuals and organisations throughout the community,” said Pilar Bush, managing director of AtWater consulting. “AtWater is delighted to present these women with clothing they will be proud to wear while on work experience or job placements.”
The clothing drive was held during the month of March, which is observed as Honouring Women’s Month in the Cayman Islands.
Donations were received from individuals and businesses.
