Hosted by the United Way of Southern Nevada’s Women’s Leadership Council, the annual one-day suit drive collects suits and other business attire for women in need. The drive helps women prepare for career opportunities and gain confidence to succeed during job interviews and in the workplace. Last year’s drive collected 7,084 professional items including suits, dresses, shoes, handbags and jewelry. Donations will benefit United Way accredited agencies with back to work programs for women.
United Way of Southern Nevada's Women’s Leadership Council (WLC) is part of a national network of dedicated women philanthropists who have collectively raised over $1B in supporting United Way's mission in the areas of Health, Education and Financial Stability. In southern Nevada, the WLC has raised over $1.3M in just six years, investing their dollars in critical projects which are changing lives. From empowering at-risk teens to graduate, to helping young children learn how to read, to providing underserved students a medical home and preventative healthcare, to supporting on-the-edge women in their quest for employment and financial independence, these dynamic and generous women are truly change agents for the community.
