Charlottesville Community Job Fair Sponsors Career Clothing Drive

In an effort to ensure that job seekers in our community have professional clothing, the Charlottesville Community Job Fair is sponsoring a clothing drive. The goal is to provide all job seekers in need of professional clothing at least one outfit that they can wear when they attend the 2012 Charlottesville Community Spring Job Fair, which will be held on Wednesday, April 25th.

To meet this goal, donations of gently-used career apparel are needed. Check your closets for items you have not worn in the last year. Ask your friends and neighbors to do the same. We ask that your career apparel donations be clean, up-to-date, and interview appropriate. All donations can be dropped off at the Central Virginia Baptist Clothing Center located at 815 Bolling Ave. in Charlottesville.
