Sudbury college collecting professional clothing for students
Program helps students prepare for jobs, placements or interviews
Cambrian College in Sudbury is hoping to help cash-strapped students prepare for job interviews.
The Women’s Resource Centre at the college is collecting donations of professional clothing.
A practical nursing student who works at the centre said the donations will help students venturing into the workforce or job placements.
“We are collecting anything from blouses, dress pants, shoes [and] accessories,” Emily Kleen said.
“[It’s ] just for anyone that is going into their new career or going for an interview.”
She said the clothing will help students who may not have a lot of extra cash to spend.
“The cost of clothes could be quite expensive if you want a nice dressy outfit,” she explained.
“So we are just trying to help anyone out there that wants something new but can’t afford it right now.”
The women’s centre is collecting clothing until Tuesday, April 8.
Later in the week, any students who are graduating, going on placement or doing a job interview will be able to take their pick.
