The Caring Closet’s message is simple: you’re not alone as a woman overcoming a financial barrier. The charity provides quality dress wear for women who need to look presentable in critical career and life situations.
Shawna Taylor, Giovanna Kada and Kim Borys, the volunteers of the organization, understand the difficulties many women who struggle with finances face when trying to aim for success. The volunteers focus on establishing a sense of importance and confidence in the women’s lives.
The Caring Closet, located in the basement of Safire on 39 Broadway Street West is making support more accessible to women by offering a variety of shoes, accessories and elegant clothing in sizes ranging from zero to plus-size. Because every person is her own unique individual, different styles of clothing are also available. The outfits are recommended for job interviews, work placements and other educational purposes.
When opportunities open and determination is just around the corner, the question then becomes: How will I meet my business goals? The encouraging Samaritans of the charity are always looking for ways to retain clients and maintain positive attitudes.
“The clothes aren’t doing any good just sitting on the hangers,” said Giovanna Kada, career counsellor at Dream Builders. “We would really like to see more women using the Caring Closet because we know there’s a need for this service in Yorkton.”
At the Caring Closet, clients browse through stylish outfits to take home for free. The experience is dynamic, memorable and beneficial. Amber Machae, one of the clients, expresses her feelings by saying, “it’s a confidence booster.” Amber was upbeat about the experience and managed to keep her optimism.
Consider another great concept for the organization: your generosity. A pair of shoes can make a big impression. It seems so many people have their eyes closed when it comes to engaging in community service. At times of difficulty, the Caring Closet is always there to help and so can you. It only takes a few minutes to drop off used quality clothing at Safire and by doing so, you are helping women strive for success.
The non-profit organization fosters self-esteem for the women, potentially leading to employment. Women of all ages are welcome to browse through the apparel. Motivate yourself to receive the help available and make an appointment by calling Glorianne Kada at 521 0332.
