Miller Canfield Helps Low Income Women Dress for Success
Nearly 150 business women donated enough suits, dresses, shoes, unused cosmetics, and accessories to fill two vehicles at the November 6 Simply Shopping event at Somerset Collection sponsored by the Women’s Business Forum of the Troy Chamber of Commerce. The items, including those collected by the law firm of Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone, P.L.C., were transported to the Detroit office of Dress for Success, a not-for-profit organization that helps women start careers by providing work attire for job interviews.
Sally Hamby, Miller Canfield attorney and 2003 chairperson of the Women’s Business Forum was impressed by the response. "We encouraged our attorneys, staff, and significant others from all of our offices in Michigan to clean their closets and send donations to the Troy office," said Hamby. "We're proud to have made a significant contribution, and we hope our effort makes a difference in someone’s career."
Hamby said Dress for Success relies on donations from individuals and companies to help more than 45,000 women in more than 75 cities each year.
