In honor of UCF’s give-back spirit, Career Services partnered with Knights Helping Knights Pantry to conduct a week long professional clothing drive to all students in need of career-ready attire for job interviews. Held the week of March 5-12 at Ferrell Commons, this brand new collaboration was a huge success.
SDES members participated in donating over 300 pieces of professional clothing and accessories from blouses, skirts, dresses, pants, ties, belts, shoes and more.
Jaime Morales, assistant director for programming at the Student Union, co-facilitated the drive stated, “I was humbled by the amount of support the division gave to this cause. I’m excited to work with Career Services in similar future endeavors.”
There was five drop off locations throughout campus with Millican Hall bringing in the most pieces, collecting over three boxes worth. Shauna Strickler, assistant director for career development Career Services, said, “There’s now a place for students who couldn’t go out and buy that nice suit for interviews.”
Knights Helping Knights is located in Ferrell Commons.
