Review for Dress for Success Boston, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I first contacted Dress for Success Boston over two years ago, it was with the intent to donate clothing I was convinced was never mine to wear again. It was almost two years since protracted illnesses led to my disability status, essentially rendering my days both empty and lived in yoga pants. I was desperate for a "makeover" myself but held no expectations that a visit to Dress for Success Boston might serve me as I aimed to serve them. Fast forward two years later and both the sophisticated clothing I don each day and the smile I carry are largely courtesy of Dress for Success Boston.
The opportunities afforded to a volunteer at DFS Boston are deeply meaningful. I know of no other organization where volunteers are directly involved daily in the mission and objectives quite like at DFS Boston. Nor where they are as respected, trusted and encouraged to play essential roles in the operations. Like all non profits, DFS Boston operates with very little and relies heavily on donors and volunteers to ensure success, I offer more and more of myself because in doing so, I gain an intrinsic value that is vital and unmeasurable. Not too far off than the clients themselves. And those yoga pants? I wear them still...but at the end of the day. After my dresses or blazers come off first :)
