Sendin’ out an S.O.S.

Give yourself a pat on the back, Marylhurst! Your efforts raised a total of $320 worth of professional attire for Dress for Success .  To give you an idea of what this looks like; 25 professional suits, 22 blouses, 18 pants, 4 pairs of shoes and 9 sweaters.  Thank you for your generous contribution to this great cause. (If you didn’t get a chance to donate last week, Dress for success is always taking donations at its headquarters on NE 37th and Broadway.)
