A new initiative by the Salvation Army of Loudoun County seeks to help women looking to re-enter the workforce, and look sharp while doing it.
The nonprofit’s Cardinal Park Drive thrift store in Leesburg has opened a new ladies “Dress for Success“ boutique offering items to achieve a professional look for that next job interview or special event. Every Thursday from 3 to 5 p.m., women get an extra 20 percent off all pant suits, blazers and sports jackets on purchases in the boutique.
The proceeds from the boutique stay in Loudoun County, and go toward paying rent and utilities for families in danger of eviction, or those behind on utility payments. Proceeds will also help the mobile canteen kitchen which makes the rounds in Loudoun County on weekends, serving meals on Saturdays with the assistance of area churches.
