CHICAGO – State Rep. Fran Hurley, D-Chicago, held her 5th Annual Business Attire Clothing Drive this past month, encouraging residents in the community to donate new and gently used business clothing attire to benefit the Find Your Future program at Kaleidoscope. Hurley collected items at all three of her district offices, resulting in over 500 items being donated.
Find Your Future is an innovative professional enrichment program that matches current and former DCFS-involved youth with paid internships, job skills training and other career development opportunities. The program is managed by Kaleidoscope which recruits businesses to participate and facilitates additional workshops to reinforce professional skills.
“I am proud to be able to help contribute to the program’s mission by holding my annual clothing drive,” said Hurley. The donated items will help program participants put their best foot forward in the workplace during the beginning of their careers.” Hurley thanks all the residents who donated items to the program and looks forward to holding the business attire clothing drive next year.
