We know that it’s not always easy to find a job, keep a job and succeed at that job. In fact, sometimes we need a little help. The Alliance of Career Development Nonprofits (ACDN) provides support to agencies who assist men and women with things like interview-appropriate clothing, job training sessions, and even financial skills. It’s member agencies are each different but all hold the same mission – anyone who wants a job, finds a job.

Each of the 21 member agencies is individually run based on that community’s needs. For example, Bottomless Closet in NYC suits both men and women, Desert Best Friend’s Closet in Palm Desert CA hold a Military Ball event every year, and Shining Success in NH is the only agency for miles around. Success in Style based in Baltimore has 4 resale shops where funds earned go directly to help women gain the skills they need to apply and interview for a job.

This year on #GivingTuesday, Yummie will donate 5% of net sales to ACDN to support their mission of supporting these agencies. Funds will help with educating these member agencies via networking webinars, and conference sessions, something that is hard for a small agency to manage on their own. Won’t you join us and support this important work? Shop today, or to donate directly or learn more, visit ACDNonline.org.
