SHED YOUR WARDROBE, HELP WOMEN
Time to clean out your closet to make room for your fall apparel? Starting Aug. 1, Westbank Dry Cleaning (www.westbankdrycleaning.com) will have a clothing drive as part of the Austin Fashion Week events to benefit Dress for Success (www. dressforsuccess.org), which provides disadvantaged women with professional clothes, support and career development tools. Gently used women’s suits, tops and professional handbags and shoes will be accepted. Donations should be clean and on hangers, and there is a need for sizes 14 to 22. Westbank will offer a $5 dry-cleaning coupon for a donation. Dropoffs will be accepted at Westbank’s eight local locations. The clothing drives ends Aug. 21.
Money collected from members of nonprofit organization Austin Involved as well as raised from a silent auction and raffle donations at official Austin Fashion Week events will be donated to Dress For Success. Austin Fashion Week begins Aug. 14.
