Connecting During a Pandemic

Update on COVID-19 Recovery from Dress for Success Pittsburgh

With more women being vaccinated and returning to the workforce, the need for employment readiness services is crucial. If you or a woman you know need services, please call 412-201-4204 or email pittsburgh@dressforsuccess.org for assistance. Watch or read more about The University of Pittsburgh Center for Creativity's short film "Chasing Covid."

Dress for Success Pittsburgh is committed to providing safe spaces for self-identified women of every race, socioeconomic status, gender, and sexual identity to receive the clothing and employment readiness support they need to feel strong and confident as they take the next step in their career journey. We will continue to take part in conversations that promote economic, racial, and gender equality.

As the CDC and the state of Pennsylvania begin to relax mask mandates for those who are vaccinated, we ask everyone to respect those who choose to continue wearing a mask and to practice physical distancing at our boutiques, mobile services events, and other Dress for Success Pittsburgh events.

Thanks to regular contributions from Monthly Giving Club (MGC) members, the team has been able to provide a contactless safe delivery to get them started on their career journey.

Supporters interested in making an in-kind donation of clothing, shoes or professional accessories may schedule a donation drop off at the Allegheny boutique location at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040c4eabad2aabf94-nocontact. Please note that due to the overwhelming generosity of our supporters and increased safety restrictions due to the pandemic, we have limited capacity for accepting in-kind donations through the calendar year. We encourage donors to check back regularly, as openings will be added as our boutique space and volunteer availability allows. To schedule in-kind donation drop offs at the Washington boutique, email genevieve@dressforsuccesspittsburgh.org.

For other ways to support us during this time, we invite our donors to consider making a financial contribution at https://pittsburgh.dressforsuccess.org/get-involved/donate/ that will enable us to purchase needed items, or to shop our Amazon registries (Allegheny, Butler, Fayette, Washington) for highly needed personal care items to ship directly to one of our boutiques. By shopping https://smile.amazon.com and selecting Dress for Success Pittsburgh as the charitable organization, AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of eligible purchases to Dress for Success Pittsburgh.
