New Year's Day = free career clothing

After two successful donation dates, the Delta Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority will offer free career clothing to both men and women on New Year's Day. 

In conjunction with the chapter's 79th anniversary, members began gathering gently-used professional clothing in November, with the hope of providing interview attire for unemployed or underemployed individuals in the Charlotte area.

Collectively, roughly 40 men’s and 50 women’s outfits in a variety of sizes were donated. Chapter member Jessica Minter said one gentleman drove more than an hour to make a donation. 

The total number of donations surpassed the chapter's goal of  collecting at least 79 items – the same number of years the local chapter has been in Charlotte – and separate shopping times will be available for men and women. 

All items are free of charge and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Men's shopping hours will be 9 a.m. to noon, women's from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Delta Zeta Chapter property, 4248 Beatties Ford Road, Charlotte.

The Delta Zeta Chapter also partnered with Collins Cleaners to provide complimentary dry cleaning services and a limited amount of vouchers will be distributed during the event.
