Point Breeze Credit Union hosts clothing drive and donates $20,000 to Dress for Success of Greater Baltimore
Nonprofit Empowering Women to Achieve Economic Independence
HUNT VALLEY, MD (March 9, 2022) — On International Women’s Day 2022, Point Breeze Credit Union announced a $20,000 donation to the local Greater Baltimore affiliate of Dress for Success. Point Breeze staff and leadership also hosted a clothing drive, donating new and gently used business professional workwear to Dress for Success, in addition to the monetary donation. The mission of Dress for Success – a nonprofit in over 150 cities worldwide – is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and the developmental tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
Dress for Success refers women to local participating boutiques, where volunteers assist in choosing business attire to help them feel confident and look their best while job searching and interviewing for new employment, as well as offering career guidance and support.
“Point Breeze believes it is important to support nonprofits like Dress for Success, who are instilling confidence and providing valuable assistance to members of our community every day,” said Point Breeze President & CEO, Tonia Niedzialkowski. “We wanted to assist in bolstering the growth and professional development of working women, which includes helping them obtain appropriate attire.”
Supporting and empowering women in the workplace is particularly important to Point Breeze Credit Union, where the senior leadership team is comprised of all women and the overall workforce is currently 87 percent female professionals.
“As women leaders, it is our role to help grow the next generation of leaders,” Niedzialkowski continued. “My best advice to women seeking career growth is to believe in yourself and find good mentors—people who care about you and want you to succeed.”
