Dress for Success Update
On April 18th, members of the EWHC Membership and Community Involvement committees had planned to meet at Binkley’s Kitchen to network with fellow EWHC members and support Dress for Success (DFS). Unfortunately we had to cancel due to terrible weather. But our members still came through – we were able to pick-up donations. We collected 16 suits, 5 jackets, 6 blouses, 21 skirts and pants, 1 handbag, and a dress. Read about how you can still donate here.
