Mayor Annise Parker, City Council Member Brenda Stardig, and executives from Dress for Success and Chevron kick off an initiative which promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Local establishments will participate in Dress for Success Houston’s Send One Suit Day which will be the start of a charitable week. For the past 11 years, Dress for Success Houston (DFSH) has hosted and engaged the community in its large, city-wide suit drive. During this week, more than 100 companies will host suit drives at over 200 locations. This initiative brings in over 60 percent of the agency’s clothing inventory.
