Current volunteer opportunities
Dress for Work (Skilled Volunteer)
Dress for Work is a free service that provides donated professional business clothing to men who find it difficult to afford quality clothing. This helps them to dress professionally when seeking employment. The day to day service is run by an amazing group of volunteers under the supervision of DFW Manager. We need more helping hands to sustain the service and serve more people in need. We are currently looking for volunteers with networks and experience who can help raise philanthropic and corporate funding for the program and support us in marketing and media.
