Donate to the Career Closet

Career Center staff will accept and sort clothing donations from staff, students and alumni on an ongoing basis. Any items that are not used by the Career Closet will be donated to the Vincentian Community Service Office or the Salvation Army.  Building and diversifying our clothing supply is important to the success of the Career Closet program. We appreciate your support!
