Spring Cleaning at the Millionair Club Charity: last week, a can-do team of volunteers from Sellen Construction helped us organize our clothing closet. The MCC’s closet of donated clothing and shoes is a crucial resource for job seekers who are accessing work through the MCC’s employment program.
Our workforce comes in eager to get out on the job, but many of them lack clothing and shoes that meet professional and safety standards for the job site. That’s where the clothing closet comes in, outfitting our workers for job success with items like black slacks and non-slip shoes, both of which are required for food service jobs at CenturyLink stadium and Safeco Field.Work boots, often donated by MCC partner Redwing Shoes, are another job essential, increasing safety for day labor assignments such as moving and yard work.
In 2016, our MCC clothing closet helped 781 workers access job ready attire, and the MCC employment program accomplished 16,258 days of work!
Doing some spring cleaning of your own? You can donate gently used items appropriate for outdoor work or black slacks for events. Please email us or drop by during our office hours, or, reach out online by giving socks, slacks, and shoes through our Amazon Wish List and outfit a job seeker in need.
