*Please donate clothing on hangers. Casual clothing, or items with stains will not be accepted.

All donations are tax-deductible.

In addition to professional suits, monetary donations also make an impact. Approximately 55% percent of Dress for Success Houston clients are size 14 to 38 but only 15% percent of inventory donations are in this size range. With your monetary donation of $100, DFSH will purchase a much-needed professional plus-size suit and accessories. Donations may be payable by check to Dress for Success Houston and can be dropped off at Houstonia. For more information about monetary donations please contact Stacy Alauf Stacy@dfshouston.org

Dress for Success Houston understands that if a woman doesn’t have a job, she can’t afford a suit. But, without a suit, she can’t get a job! By donating interview-appropriate suits to our Suit Drive, you will be helping low-income women in our community get on the road to success. If you would like more information on Dress for Success Houston, please visit their website at www.dfshouston.org.
