Assembly Candidates’ Clothing Drive Will Help Dozens Of Women Get Back To Work In Style

PARSIPPANY —  On Saturday, May 11, in honor of Mother’s Day, Laura Fortgang and Christine Clarke, Democratic General Assembly candidates for Legislative District 26, hosted a clothing drive for Dress for Success at the IHOP, 792 Route 46, that yielded two car loads of business clothes for women in need.

Donations of new and gently used professional clothes collected will go to help women have appropriate clothing for interviews and the workplace once hired.

Dress for Success is a group that helps low-income and economically disadvantaged women by providing professional clothing, skills development, and networking opportunities to empower women to become independent and achieve success.

“The turnout was fantastic. Some donations even had the tags still on them!” says Laura Fortgang. “This was a win-win. The community could feel good knowing what they no longer needed could be paid forward to help a woman get a fresh start as she enters the workforce.”

“It’s critical to see and uplift all members of our community. I’m proud that Laura and I are running campaigns committed to representing all of our constituents,” says Christine Clarke

The Democratic primary is Tuesday, June 4, and the general election is November 5, with polls open from 6:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.
