The Giving Back Exchange is pleased to announce the 6th Annual Clothing Drive to support women (and men) who are training to enter the workforce and build a life of self-sustainment. The Cara Program prepares and inspires motivated individuals to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty, transform their lives, strengthen our communities, and forge paths to real and lasting success.

Donations will be accepted at the September 16 Dinner Program. 

Acceptable items are gently used, clean, interview-ready business attire for men and women, including:

• Suits
• Blazers or Jackets
• Dress Shirts / Blouses
• Dress Pants / Skirts
• Socks or Hosiery (new only please)
• Women’s Shoes, Purses, Jewelry, Scarves, and Accessories
• Men’s Ties, Shoes and Belts
NOTE: The most needed items are larger-sized women's clothing.

Items must be clean (or dry-cleaned), but mode of transportation (hanger, box, bag) is up to you. Simply drop your items off upon arriving at the Club. All donations will be given to The Cara Program and are tax deductible (receipt available upon request).

About The Cara Program (TCP)
The Cara Program was founded in 1991 by entrepreneur and philanthropist, Tom Owens. Inspired by the good work of Mother Teresa and moved by the global challenges affronting the poor, Tom returned home and dedicated himself to empowering adults affected by homelessness and poverty to find quality employment.   You can learn more at
