Members of the Townsend & Associates team dedicated their time to volunteer at Dress for Success on Saturday, November 23rd. Dress for Success is a non-profit organization founded in 1997 which provides professional attire and employment services to help disadvantaged women find employment. Dress for Success has served over 700,000 women all around the world. Clients come from a variety of Government Agencies, Homeless Shelters and other non-profit agencies. Some of the services that Dress for Success offers are the Professional Women’s Group and Career Center, which both aim to support women entering the workforce and offer extending career guidance and technology skills. At Townsend & Associates, we thrive in helping others find new job opportunities and giving them the ability to achieve their goals. Dress for Success is a great organization that understands that professional attire is important when going on an interview and plays a role in making a great first impression. We felt an eminent connection between our mission at Townsend & Associates and the purpose of the Dress for Success organization. Townsend & Associates donated a variety of professional work attire for the Dress for Success located in Madison, NJ. Three members of the team participated in shop maintenance, where they sorted through clothing, organized the shop and arranged clothing as needed. We went the extra step to give back to those in need and will carry on in the future helping in any way that we can. Just a couple of hours of your day can make a huge difference in the lives of others and is always appreciated. Dress for Success depends on the help and effort of their volunteers and without them, the Dress for Success mission would not be possible. With three locations in New Jersey, including Morris County, Mercer County and Hudson County, there are many opportunities to give back.
On December 5th, Townsend & Associates held a Holiday Charity Event at the Madison Hotel in Morristown, NJ. The Townsend & Associates staff, along with family and friends, came together to celebrate the holidays as well as give back to a local charity, Homeless Solutions Inc. Guests of the event brought toys, bicycles and clothing, which were donated to children of all ages living at the shelter. Homeless Solutions was established in May of 1983 and over the years has grown and expanded its services. Today, Homeless Solutions provides shelter for twenty-five homeless men, ten women, ten families and twenty Safe Haven guests. They are given beds, clothing and food as well as employment assistance, money management and daily life living skills training. A few members of the Townsend & Associates staff delivered all the gifts directly to the shelter, located on West Hanover Ave in Morristown, NJ. Townsend & Associates felt these families also deserve hope and happiness at this magical time of the year.
Townsend & Associates Inc. wishes you and your families a Happy Holiday and a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
