Metro-Memphis Baptist team members donated 300 articles of clothing and $500 during Baptist’s first Dress for Success drive. Dress for Success will give the clothes – business skirts, dresses, suits and blouses – to disadvantaged people who need professional attire to thrive in work and in life. The money will be used to dry clean donated items.
“We are extremely grateful for the support from Baptist,” said Rhonda L. Treadwell, executive director of Dress for Success Memphis, Inc.
Baptist DeSoto collected an additional 85 articles of clothing for the House of Grace, a facility that helps North Mississippi women and children affected by domestic violence.
