Husky Closet Clothing Drive is back

The Husky Closet Clothing Drive is back.

The second-annual professional clothing drive is running throughout the month of June to help students build their professional wardrobes for the Fall Career Fair as well as for future co-ops and job interviews. The Northeastern community can donate gently used professional clothes and accessories—from suits and skirts to belts, shoes, and jewelry.

Through June 30, items can be dropped off at the Social Justice Resource Center, which is located at 106 St. Stephen Street. Faculty and staff can email Michelle DuBow (m.dubow@northeastern.edu) in the Career Development office or Shaya Gregory Poku (s.poku@northeastern.edu), program director of the Social Justice Resource Center, with questions about drop-off.

Last year’s drive collected more than 800 items of professional clothing to support 500 students. Organizers hope to double the amount collected this year.

Gently used professional clothing to donate includes:

  • Suit jackets/blazers/sport coats
  • Pants/trousers
  • Skirts
  • Blouses
  • Button-downs/polo dress shirts
  • Dresses
  • Scarves
  • Ties
  • Belts
  • Shoes
  • Jewelry
  • Briefcases/bags

If you can, please have the items professionally dry cleaned before donating them.

The university will hold an event in the fall, on Tuesday, Sept. 26, for students to shop (for free) from the donated items. The Fall Career Fair is scheduled for the following week, on Thursday, Oct. 5.

The drive is supported by the Department of Career Development, the Social Justice Resource Center, the John D. O’Bryant African American Institute, the Office of Alumni Relations, and the Trash2Treasure student organization.
