For the past 6 years, the Detroit Athletic Club has collected professional clothing among its members and donated them to our organization. We have been able to give these pieces of clothing to our students who are soon entering the professional workforce.
“I have a history of working in the Detroit community, and the DAC is proud to work with Focus: HOPE and this particular initiative that helps create self-esteem and self worth for for the people returning to work,” said Brenda Schneider, DAC Community Outreach Committee Member.
In total, the Detroit Athletic Club donated 776 items of executive clothing for our students.
In order to prepare our students for the workforce, we enforce a dress code. Students who are unable to meet this dress code are able to find clothes in our student clothes closet, where these items will be going. Thanks to organizations like the DAC, our closet contains sports coats, dresses, pencil skirts, suits and more of all sizes for both male and females.
Thank you Detroit Athletic Club, from everyone at Focus: HOPE.
As you know, we are a nonprofit organization that relies on generous donors like you to keep our doors open for those we serve. Please consider making a donation today and remember that one donation to Focus: HOPE, changes an entire generation.
