Last week, Dimmitt Automotive Group was excited to welcome Katie McGill, Executive Director of Dress for Success Tampa Bay. Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization offering services designed to help their clients find jobs and remain employed. Each Dress for Success client receives suits, purses and other items when they have an interview and can return when they find a job for more pieces. Clients can also receive assistance with Interview Skills and Resume Writing.

The mission of Dress for Success Tampa Bay is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women to thrive in work and life.

Dimmitt Automotive Group was honored that Katie took the time out of her busy schedule to speak to us. Her story inspired us all. We were able to collect clothing, shoes and purses from our associates to donate to Dress for Success. The photos are proof that Katie’s car was packed when she left! There are many opportunities to volunteer with Dress for Success. Opportunities include assisting someone with a mock interview, helping them selecting the right outfit for the interview and various other jobs at the Dress for Success Boutique. By volunteering your time, you can be a valuable asset in helping someone enter the workforce.

If you would like to donate clothing, shoes or purses, please visit Dress for Success’ website for more information: http://www.dressforsuccess.org/
