Women Giving Back was founded in June 2007, by a core group of building industry sales and marketing professionals. The goal is to supplement the great work HomeAid Northern Virginia does in renovating shelters by helping transitionally homeless women and children get on their feet with clothes to help them enter the workplace.
These women can shop for professional, work-oriented clothing and accessories without charge. Volunteers collect the clothing and open WGB – The Store on the second Saturday of each month from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm. WGB – The Store is held at 20 Export Drive, Sterling, VA.
Women from 100 shelters and programs are invited to shop each month. Their smiles are all the thanks our volunteers need.
WGB has distributed over 300,000 items of clothing to more than 23,000 women and 15,300 children from over 100 shelters in Northern Virginia. WGB – The Store is very successful helping women get professional clothing, and we have to restock each month. We need continual donations of good quality clothing to support our program.
For the month of March, Helios HR will be donating women’s and children’s clothing, handbags and other accessories such as shoes and jewelry to the WGB program. If you would like to donate clothing feel free to drop clothing items off at our office during normal business hours or contact HomeAid Northern Virginia at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Marjie at 703-554-9386.
