On Wednesday, July 19 Pepco and Suited for Change partnered to host #Suited4PopUp, an all-day sale benefitting local women in need. Proceeds of the sale support the organization’s mission of assisting low-income women on their path to financial independence with professional attire and life-skills training.
The #Suited4PopUp shopping event featured designer and brand name items, shoes and handbags – all at steep discounts.
“We’re so excited to partner with Pepco on #Suited4PopUp,” said Kate Dean, Suited for Change executive director. “We hope the community will shop and find great bargains, but also learn about our organization and get involved with helping local women. Our clients have overcome great obstacles to become newly financially independent, and when you invest in us, you invest in them.”
Since 1992, Suited for Change has supported women in the District of Columbia Metro Region seeking to enter the workforce. Clients are building new lives – interviewing for and starting new jobs – and are referred by hundreds of partner social services agencies and organizations. More than 24,000 local women have been through Suited for Change’s doors, and today, the organization sees more than 110 clients each month.
“Pepco believes in the work that Suited for Change does in the community, and we’re excited that the Pepco Edison Place Gallery can host this event,” said Debbi Jarvis, vice president, Pepco Holdings Corporate Relations. “The funds generated from the popup shop will help support initiatives to empower local women for the workforce.”
