Group Volunteerism


Feel Good Fridays are a fun, physical day. Gathering a group to give a few hours at our mission by accepting and sorting business apparel is a fun way to spend time with friends or co-workers and help our cause!  We dress casually and use our combined energy to ensure the next week’s clients have an empowering experience! This important task helps Dress for Success Columbus keep our boutique ready for clients. Dress for Success Columbus accepts donations from generous contributors during the week, especially on Fridays and volunteers accept and sort business apparel to place on the boutique floor!

Is your group interested in volunteering at Dress for Success Columbus? Contact Molly Preston, Contributions Coordinator at with the following information:

  • Preferred date(s) and time (s) for your activity. Fridays are the best day for groups, between 10 AM and 4 PM.
  • Number of volunteers
  • Contact information for point person

Effective 2018, a $250 contribution to the mission is graciously accepted to secure your group volunteer date.  All of our programs for every woman we serve are free of charge; $250 is the cost associated with a client receiving Employment Suiting (5 workplace outfits…yay!) once she secures employment.  Help us reach our fundraising goal to support 48 women in 2018 re-entering the workforce with a new wardrobe! Last year alone, we outfitted 688 newly employed women, helping them feel as confident starting their new jobs as they did on their interview, in outfits styled by our fabulous Personal Stylists in our Suiting Boutique!

Here’s another idea – Host a Friendraiser! It’s a great way to bring a group together and strengthen our mission! Learn more here!
