    Women's Leadership Council Suit DriveHosted by the United Way of Southern Nevada’s Women’s Leadership Council, the annual one-day suit drive on Friday, November 1, 2013 collects suits and other business attire for women in need.

    The drive helps women prepare for career opportunities and gain confidence to succeed during job interviews and in the workplace. Last year’s drive collected more than 6,200 professional items including suits, dresses, shoes, handbags and jewelry.

    Donations will benefit United Way accredited agencies with back to work programs for women. Donations of gently used and/or professional attire should be clean and on a hanger. Please also consider donating shoes, handbags and jewelry.

    Drive-thru donations can be made at the parking lot of NV Energy at 6226 W. Sahara Avenue, Las Vegas, NV 89151 on Nov. 1, 2013 from 7a.m. – 2p.m. Donations will also be accepted during the month of October during normal business hours at the Miracle Mile Shops customer service desk operated by Tickets & Tours.

    By donating a suit, you can help women like Teresa who selected a beautiful and professional interview suit and is now employed with a Fortune 200 company with training opportunities and Sarah who was hired as an executive chef at a resort with insurance, benefits and an affordable cost of living. These women now have a renewed sense of confidence and hope.
