Neumann University helps local residents with work wardrobe

- A local university is making sure residents look their best when they head for a job interview. The best part? It's free of charge.

FOX 29 Photojournalist Bill Rohrer has the story. 

Danielle McNichol is on a mission to help Neumann University students find a new business wardrobe. It's all part of the University’s Center for Leadership Wardrobes for Work program. For the last several months, over 80,000 pieces of clothing have been collected.  Local residents in need of a new suit or dress it's here and it's free.

"We provide them with three days worth of clothing for interviews, second and first day of work. So they would not have to worry about an appropriate wardrobe would be for them to return to the workforce," Director for the Center for Leadership McNichol said.

Student Zac Clifton needs the clothes for a future internship.  

"It saves money. You know most college students money is tight. It will be something that will help me out in the long run instead of going to Macy's or going to JOS Bank spending a lot of money just for one suit or tie or dress shirt."

Biology Major Jennifer Ney needs clothes for an upcoming interview.

"During the interview they said to be ready for anything. They could take you right into the  lab to see how you actually work," she said.

Whatever their need may be, Danielle will be there to find the perfect match.

"You can see the smile in their face and the relief that they have the opportunity to use that money, especially during the holiday season for something for their selves or someone in their family," McNichol said.
