Mid-East Career and Technology Centers is hoping to start a new tradition.
Today marked their first ever Business Attire Clothing Drive. The drive was coordinated by the administrative assistant class, the adult education center and instructor Keri Rosser. Rosser explained how her class came up with the idea to hold the event.
"The class has done a couple of mock interviews and through doing the mock interviews we realized that this is a need in our community. A lot of people, you know, they go out to jobs and they don’t have the attire that they need considering, you know, its expensive."
The drive provided students and the community with business attire such as suits, dresses, shoes and much more. Rosser says she is proud of her students for working together and pulling off a great event.
"I mean the students did a great job, they put it all together themselves, they did their own marketing and they reached out to the community in different ways. They did a great job putting it together and the amount of clothing that we received definitely exceeded our expectations."
Rosser plans to keep the clothing drive in her class’s curriculum.
