Pacific Northwest Resourcing’s ATTIRE Mission:
The idea of this program is to partner with the job seeker in providing them attire to wear when searching for work or attending job interviews. We help women and men who are searching for employment that might be recovering from amongst many other things sexual assault, living in safe houses, and recovering from cancer. Many simply do not have the resources or funds to cloth themselves appropriately for job interviews. Feeling like you can place your best foot forward will boost confidence and general wellbeing. There’s fascinating research on how clothing affects performance! I need your donations to make this work!
Who will receive these benefits?
-Those actively looking for work and attending job interviews.
-Those able to successfully pass a Drug Screening.
-They must provide a written letter to Pacific Northwest Resourcing as to why they feel they would be an ideal recipient for this program, their current goals and where they see themselves in two years.
PNWR is honored to aid those who match these criteria! We are the only local clothing and toiletries program available in our community.
All our items are kindly and generously donated from members within our community that share the same vision of pulling together and supporting each other as we do.
This entire program is based on the lightly used or new clothing we receive via donations as well as unused toiletries. We are grateful for even the smallest donation. Everything donated is put to good use.
Most of our recipients acquire 2 to 3 great outfits per application. If the waitlist is fulfilled, we will open our arms again to prior Attire recipients. We don’t want the donations ‘sitting’. They are donated for the purpose of being used.
We carefully match our recipients with the perfect donation. This is done by appointment only at 535 E 8th ST at our office and we spend approx. 1 hour of quality time depending on the nature of the need.
Both Men and Women are the focus of this program!
-Men and Women's work boots and outer gear.
-Men and Women’s clothing and shoes. All sizes. INCLUDING medical Scrubs
-Men and Women’s unused toiletries. (deodorant, cosmetics, fragrance, etc.)
We make it easy for large cosmetics and clothing companies to dispose of their excess inventory by accepting large donations and by facilitating the distribution of the products. We make sure that we pair the items we receive with the recipients that are most in need.
Besides the joy of giving, Pacific Northwest Resourcing does not profit from these donations.
