Dress for Success to Host Pop-up Boutique for Franklin County Residents

ORANGE — Dress for Success Western Massachusetts (DFSWM) will host a pop-up boutique for all residents within Franklin County at American Legion Post 172, 40 Daniel Shays Highway, Orange, on Friday, April 26.

Area residents can come and receive free work-appropriate clothing between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. New and gently used clothing was donated to Dress for Success Western Massachusetts, which covers all four counties in Western Mass.

Local DFSWM programs include the Foot in the Door workforce-readiness program, the Margaret Fitzgerald Mentorship Program, the Professional Women’s Group, a digital-literacy program, and the suiting program.

Dress for Success thanks the area businesses who helped collect donations, as well as the Delta Kappa Gamma Alpha Mu sorority, which helped with collecting, sorting, and hanging the clothes received, as well as creating outfits. Work-appropriate donations will still be accepted at American Legion Post 172 through April 26.
