Thank you to all those who donated professional clothing as part of the clothing drive this fall! 230 pieces of professional clothing were collected, and donated to the Women's Center for Advancement and Heartland Family Services. Clothing donated will be included in their "Professional Closets" that are utilized by people in need of proper clothing for job interviews and work.

The OBA would like to thank the Douglas County Courthouse for allowing us to collect clothes in their location, all those who donated clothes, and to OBA Young Lawyers Division Public Service Committee Chair Lindsay Belmont for leading the effort.

Final Count:

45 men's suits, 20 men's dress shirts, 12 men's dress pants, 15 men's jackets, 5 pairs of men's shoes, 35 ties, 8 belts

15 women's suits, 25 blouses, 13 sweaters, 22 dresses, 5 purses, 8 pairs of women's shoes, 2 laptop bags
