“The dedication, enthusiasm and hard work from all of the Role Models helps us make a difference in the lives of our clients,” said Cindy Garner, Clothes That Work executive director, in a news release. “We raised over $40,000 making it our most successful campaign ever. Every dollar of the money raised goes directly to the Clothes That Work mission to clothe, educate and empower individuals to prepare them for employment success and help build a stronger Dayton workforce. This campaign inspires our job seekers and shows them that being a Role Model is attainable for them as well.”

Men at Work was created seven years ago. For years, Clothes That Work mostly served women, but today, men make up more than 58 percent of the organization’s clients. Collectively, Men at Work has generated over $190,000 to support the organization’s mission.
