AtWater Consulting Launches Second Annual Clothing Drive for a Worthy Cause

AtWater Consulting Ltd. will hold its second annual Professional First Impressions clothing drive to collect clothing and accessories for deserving women in our community.  The clothing drive, aimed at collecting gently used women’s business attire, shoes and accessories will take place during the month of March to coincide with Honouring Women’s Month in the Cayman Islands.

The 2012 clothing drive was a great success, collecting over one thousand articles of clothing, 130 pairs of shoes and 35 handbags to benefit the Family Resource Centre, Cayman Islands Crisis Centre and Passport2Success’ Single Mother Programme.

“The quantity and quality of clothing we received in 2012 exceeded our expectations,” said Pilar Bush, Managing Director of AtWater Consulting Ltd. “Our team was honoured to present these outstanding organizations, with professional attire for women and young ladies, who due to their circumstances, cannot afford to buy clothes. In some cases, have to run from crisis situations leaving behind clothes, personal effects and even toiletries. The strength and courage of these women who get up and put on a brave face despite their situations, has motivated the AtWater team to hold its second annual Professional First Impressions”.

The Professional First Impressions women’s clothing drive is planned for March; which is Women’s Month, allowing the initiative to benefit and find strength and success from the community wide focus on women.

2/2 PROFESSIONAL FIRST IMPRESSIONS 2013

The 2013 drive will collect gently used business clothing and accessories for women and will be distributed through well-established organisations such as the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre and the Family Resource Centre. Clients of these organisations will then be able to select outfits when they need them to attend work, job interviews or work experience with outfits and professional attire to match their positive attitude and resilience.

The Professional First Impressions clothing drive begins on Friday, 1 March and will end on Friday, 29 March. Donations can be made at the AtWater offices, 3rd Floor, Marquee Plaza (above Triple Crown Pub) on West Bay Road.
