12 Days of Charity | Dress for Success
December 11, 2019 - December 22, 2019
Giving back is always in fashion. Do it in style this season during SX Sky Bar’s 12 Days of Charity, a holiday clothing drive in partnership with Dress for Success Worldwide Central.
Join us Wednesday, Dec. 11 from 5-8 p.m. to kick off the drive. Peruse a visual display of fashion through the decades, courtesy of Columbia College Chicago’s Fashion Studies Collection, while enjoying holiday food and drink specials. Bring clothing to donate, and we’ll treat you to a makeup touch-up and professional headshot.
While we generally accept all matters of clean new/gently-used professional, office-appropriate attire, shoes and accessories, there are certain items, in which our ladies have a greater need. Currently, those items are as follows:
- Winter Coats/Jackets – High Need
- Handbags/Pursues – High Need
- Shoe size 9-12
- Professional attire, all sizes; 0-4, 16 & up and in-season most needed – Tip: If you wouldn’t wear it to a job interview or for the first day of work, please do not donate it.
- White Blouses/Shell Tops; 14 & upmost needed
- Toiletries such as lotions, shampoo/conditioner, toothbrushes/ toothpaste, unopened make up
Our clothing drive runs through Sunday, Dec. 22. See you at SX!
