ASTON, PA – On Tuesday, November 13, Neumann University’s Center for Leadership will host their annual Wardrobes for Work Open House.  Local residents in need of workplace suitable clothing are invited to select from thousands of articles of gently used men’s and women’s business casual attire and business suits – all free of charge.  The open house will take place on the second floor of the Rocco A. Abessinio Building on the campus of Neumann University (1 Neumann Drive, Aston, PA  19014) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

 

“We encourage the public to take advantage of our Wardrobes for Work program as the holiday hiring season is really ramping up,” said Danielle McNichol, General Counsel of Neumann University and Director of the Neumann Center for Leadership.  “The community has generously donated thousands of articles of clothing for men and women seeking entry and re-entry into the workforce.  These items are free of charge and available for those wishing to kick-start their wardrobe or those looking to supplement their current attire.”

 

The Wardrobes for Work program was initiated in 2016 by Neumann University’s Center for Leadership and offers a range of men’s and women’s business suits, dress suits, and casual workplace attire.  In order to ensure that enough clothes are available in a variety of sizes, individuals will be limited to three outfits during the open house.  Over the past two years, dozens of local businesses and law firms, the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce, and Delaware County government offices have helped collect more than 25,000 of articles of clothing by placing workplace attire donation boxes in their offices.

 

Neumann University is easily accessible by SEPTA and the campus is a stop on the 114 Bus Route.  To plan your trip via public transit, please visit www.septa.org/m/maps/trip.html.

 

Individuals who are unable to make the open house but are in need of workplace attire are encouraged to schedule an appointment by emailing mcnichod@neumann.edu or by calling 610-358-4528.
