Dress for Success to Participate in Two Hispanic Heritage Events
SPRINGFIELD — Dress for Success Western Massachusetts will take part in two events to honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage month in September. The events will celebrate Latinas, who make up almost half of the women Dress for Success serves every year.
