Lawyers Donate Professional Clothing
Dozens of professional attorneys are doing their part to help others get a foot in the door on their chosen profession.
Lawyers from the Oklahoma Association for Justice donated a trailer full of professional clothing Thursday to The Education and Employment Ministry (TEEM.)
Association officials say their goal is to tackle homelessness and unemployment, and they think the clothing items will help those who are looking for a job.
“Making that first impression at their interview is so critical, and so to have a really nice outfit, really makes the difference for them, it gives them confidence,” said Lauren Guhl, Community Service Coordinator with the Oklahoma Association for Justice.
TEEM officials say more than 80 percent of their students don’t have clothes appropriate for job interviews.
