Dress for Success Tallahassee Release: Dress for Success and JCPenney Encourage Shoppers to Round Up Purchases Throughout the Month of February
For the First Time, jcp cares Supporters will be Able to Round Up Purchases at jcp.com
As part of its charitable giving program, jcp cares, jcpenney is inviting its customers to round up their purchases in February to the nearest whole dollar and donate the difference to benefit Dress for Success, an organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Through its dedicated services and programs Dress for Success addresses every phase of a woman’s career—from being unemployed and searching, to recently employed and adjusting, to gainfully employed and succeeding.
“A cornerstone component of Dress for Success is the idea of people helping people -- that we must all work together to succeed. One of the best things about this partnership with jcpenney is that it calls the community into action. Anyone and everyone can play a role in helping an unemployed woman enter the workforce, which we know helps her, her family, her community and our economy,” said Joi Gordon, CEO of Dress for Success Worldwide. “We recognize that there are an immeasurable number of obstacles that women face in today’s economic climate and, with jcpenney’s support, we will be able to expand the assistance that we provide to more than 65,000 women each year to overcome them.”
