LA Pierce College Professional Clothing Drive

To help local students enter the workforce, Councilmember Blumenfield is partnering with Pierce College and the West Valley Warner Center Chamber of Commerce for a Professional Clothing Drive. From now to August 26, 2022, you can make a real difference by donating office appropriate clothing to the Brahma Career Closet. This is a new resource for students who need professional attire for interviews, career fairs, and job placements. Your generous donations will allow job seekers to feel confident to successfully enter the workplace and launch their careers. Most Pierce College students and alumni are from the San Fernando Valley and nearby communities, and this clothing drive will help them connect with employers to succeed in their job searches. 

Instructions to donate:

Hours and Location Dropoff: Monday-Friday, 8AM- 4PM, until Friday, August 26.

LA Pierce College, 6201 Winnetka Ave, Woodland Hills
