Student Testimonials:

"I really appreciate your donations and dry cleaning assistance. As a full-time student who works between two and three jobs a semester just to finance my education, any assistance allowing me to pursue my career is extremely helpful. Because of this event, I now have a suit to wear to medical school interviews."
—Anonymous StudentBiological Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies

"As a college student paying his own way through tuition and drowning in student loans, buying professional clothing is a struggle and I am extremely grateful for the generosity of those who helped ensure that I am able to present myself in job interviews in the best way possible."
—Nicholas BucherBusiness Technology Administration
