"It starts with a Suit”

The Rotary Club of Westborough will be hosting an apparel and accessories drive to benefit Dress for Success Worcester (DFS). DFS envisions a world where women do not live in poverty. They strive for a world where all women are financially independent, are treated with dignity and respect and are directly impacting their lives and those of their families. They aspire to a world that fully harnesses the power of women and recognizes their role in economic sustainability.

The drive will take place from October 29 – November 12. Items can be dropped off at the Westborough Public Library and the Boroughs YMCA. If you are interested in making a donation, but you are unable to bring your items to one of these locations please contact the Club’s Service Chair, Shelby Marshall, at marshall@westboroughrotary.org, to arrange a time for pick up.
