This year Maximum FX ,in partnership with Dress for Success, will be hosting the first annual Bra-lapalooza Bra drive to provide new bra undergarments to individuals participating in the Dress for Success program. Dress for Success is a program for women who are often from an abusive or unfortunate home situation that would otherwise not have the resources to start a new career.
While participating in Dress for Success these women receive assistance in attaining interview attire for potential career opportunities. They are taken one-on-one with a Dress for success personal shopper and shown what is appropriate interview attire and fitted for one or more interviewing suits. They are also provided with job training and education as well as post-job training. Dress for Success also offers mentoring and counseling services as well as an ongoing career development program. These services are provided at no cost to the clients.
After meeting with Dress for Success Executive Director, Judy Chambers, we established that there is more than enough clothing, however there are a shortage of undergarmets—specifically bras. The goal of the Bra-lapalooza bra drive is to gather new bras for the clients participating in the program. Unfortunately some of these ladies have never even owned a bra, therefore have no idea the difference that such a small undergarment could make. With help from our community we know that we can make a difference for these women.
Beginning today through December 15th, clients who donate at least one new bra on their next salon visit will receive a complimentary Aveda Beauty On Demand service, a $35 value. For a description of these services, click here.
New bras (mainly large sizes) may be purchased for a reasonable price at TJ Maxx, Ross, Wal-Mart, and Target. Any help that is offered will be more than appreciated. Here at Maximum FX we gladly accept any and all support.
