The mission of Dress for Success Indianapolis is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
More than 9,000 women have been served through Dress for Success Indianapolis since the organization was founded in 1999. Classic Cleaners has supported Dress for Success Indianapolis since 2003 and has supported this good cause in two main ways:
On an ongoing basis, each of our retail locations act as drop-off sites for donations of women’s suits and blouses. We then complimentary clean the women’s suits and blouses our customers donate to this organization and deliver them to Dress for Success Indianapolis’ downtown office. Since our partnership began, and with our customers’ help, over 8,500 women have interviewed in style, confidence, and a clean crisp suit.
Classic Cleaners has supported Dress for Success Indianapolis through the organization’s annual “Send One Suit Week” drive and the annual signature fundraiser, Stepping Out in Style.
Since 2008 Classic Cleaners has sponsored or attended the annual Stepping Out in Style fundraising event and has acted as the Donation Match Sponsor, Classic Image Sponsor and in 2018 we’re committed to sponsoring the fundraisers after party. Combined through these initiatives we’re thrilled to contribute over $75,000 in sponsorship dollars.
In total, through our above mentioned partnership, Classic Cleaners’ corporate donations to Dress for Success Indianapolis have amounted to more than $190,000!
