Counterpart member Edie Swart will speak about the history of Center for Women in Transition (CWIT). Edie has a long-time involvement with the organization in the Grand Haven area and was a board member at its inception.
Edie would also like to remind everyone that CWIT will be collecting gently-used clothes and accessories for the Fall Clothing Drive. CWIT will have a van at the entrance to the Holiday Inn to start collecting your donations at 11:30 am. Receipts available on request.
Contributions to the clothing drives have been dropping off in recent years, so we urge you to take a good look in your closets and put those little-worn outfits to good use. At CWIT, women can visit the “Wardrobe for Work” and are assisted in selecting several outfits that can be worn for interviews and work attire. Your generosity could be the difference in some woman feeling more confident and getting a job.
