AAUW, SUNY Canton prep for Professional Clothing Fair


CANTON - Despite the recent news about unemployment easing slightly in the nation, here in the north country job seekers are still competing hard for too few openings. And the cost of new clothing makes dressing for success an expensive proposition. But thanks to SUNY Canton and the St. Lawrence County Branch of AAUW, help is at hand with the 12th annual Professional Clothing Fair.

The Fair is open to anyone looking to get a few items of clothing suitable for a job interview, student teaching, the office, or an employment upgrade. The 2013 Fair will take place on March 21 and 22 at the SUNY Canton Miller Campus Center’s Multipurpose Gym. You can “shop” from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. March 20 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 21.

“Gently used” or new clothing and accessories will be available, thanks to the generous donations of many North Country organizations and people. You can drop off your donations of clean, ready to hang clothing from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. until March 19 (Park in Lot 13). Charitable donation tax receipts using standard valuation charts ere available upon request, if needed.
