Group Volunteerism


Is your group interested in volunteering at Dress for Success Columbus? ‘Feel Good Fridays’ are full of high energy and fun! Come with a group of ten (10) or less and set aside a couple of hours to volunteer and support our mission of inspiring and empowering women in Central Ohio. It is a great way to spend time with friends or practice team-building with co-workers! Dress casually and comfortably because you will be moving to ensure the needs of the agency are met, and our boutique floor is replenished with merchandise and ready for the Personal Stylists to suit our clients!

Below please find a few examples of some projects your team may work on:

  • Organize warehouse and/or basement
  • Assist in donations acceptance area
  • Sort and organize merchandise in the warehouse
