It’s been an incredibly busy Women’s History Month at Bottomless Closet!
First off, we’d like to welcome you to our brand new website and blog! For our 20th anniversary this year, we decided we would usher in the next 20 years with a fresh look and feel on our website. We’ve simplified the menu and streamlined the content, and the new site will enable us to share more stories, more photos and videos, and more of an inside look at our daily work to help women in need. We hope you love it as much as we do.
March was also a jam-packed month of events for Bottomless Closet. Just check out this snapshot!
This month alone, we held the following events for our clients:
- 5 Financial Management Workshops
- 4 Professional Development Workshops
- 3 Yoga Sessions
- 2 Women’s History Month events
- 1 Career Day
- 1 Sephora Makeup workshop
We had a total of 225 attendees at our workshops and events during the month of March!
We even held our annual Smart & Sexy Day event for our clients through our partnership with ACDN (The Alliance of Career Development Nonprofits) and the Smart & Sexy intimates brand.
It was a day full of workshops, sharing experiences and supporting each other, and of course bra fittings and a free bra for each attendee.
Along with our partners at Swarovski, we also held an event on March 7 to celebrate International Women’s Day, featuring an inspiring female empowerment panel of several trailblazing women.
