The Husky Closet Clothing Drive

Northeastern University's Department of Career Development, the Social Justice Resource Center, the John D. O’Bryant African American Institute, the Office of Alumni Relations and the Trash2Treasure student organization invites you to support the 2nd Annual Husky Closet initiative.

 

This initiative will teach individuals the skill of professional branding starting with professional attire. Employers will be present to educate individuals on professional dress expectations of the workplace and offer tips to develop a successful professional brand.

 

Last year, the Husky Closet initiative collected over 800 items of professional clothing to support 500 members of the Northeastern University community. We are looking to double our selection size this year and need your help. We would like to collect the professional clothing that you no longer need.
