Acting Governor Guadagno Celebrates Success of
Dress Our Vets Clothing Drive
Professional Clothing Donations Will Directly Benefit Women Veterans
Trenton, NJ —Joined by women legislators and veteran groups, Acting Governor Kim Guadagno today marked the conclusion of the Dress Our Vets initiative, which collected new and like-new professional clothing for women veterans transitioning to the civilian workforce.
Donations came from all over the state during Women’s History Month from participating women legislators’ offices and from Siemens Corporation in Iselin as part of the Dress Our Vets campaign.
“We anticipated a positive response to this event, but we were overwhelmed by the amount of clothing we received! And I am certain that we will change many veterans’ lives with these donations,” said Acting Governor Guadagno. “Our efforts today will help women veterans communicate to future employers what we already know: that they are incredible resources who will be great employees at any company. I am proud to have worked with Suiting Warriors Foundation on this project and I thank the legislators, their constituents, and Siemens Corporation – all of whom who jumped at the chance to assist women veterans during this campaign.”
