Recently, the Norfolk Registry of Deeds, as part of its “Suits for Success” program, donated boxes and racks of clothing and shoes to the Needham Community Council.
The “Suits for Success” program, developed by Register William O’Donnell, in partnership with several local charities, collects donations of suitable clothing to be distributed to groups like the Needham Community Council and to individuals who may need appropriate attire for employment interviews.
The Needham Community Council is a non-profit group with 15 staff members and over 300 volunteers that for more than ninety years has provided a variety of services to members of the community who may need assistance with various health, educational and social needs. The Council accepts donations of clothing to be sold at its popular thrift shop. Programs funded by the thrift shop include a food pantry, an English language learning program, a medical equipment lending program, and a transportation program. It also partners with “Karma of Clothing” to provide eligible women with clothing from its thrift shop and consultations with trained personal clothing stylists.
“We greatly appreciate Register O’Donnell’s efforts to assist us in supporting our programs and helping us to provide much needed services to our neighbors in need”, stated Judy Lambert, Needham Community Council’s program director.
Register O’Donnell remarked, “We’re happy to assist the Community Council. I thank all those who donated to our “Suits for Success” program and I hope other local residents and businesses will consider making a clothing donation. The program is truly needed, and it’s a great resource for the community.”
