COMMUNITY SERVICE: We support a different community non-profit at each meeting.  For this meeting, please bring new or gently worn suits or business clothing, to support Career Closet, a non-profit organization in northern California. They provide a wonderful service to economically disadvantaged women who are trying to get back into the workforce. The Board of Directors would like to know the community organizations that YOU, our members, want to support. Please let any board member know of your community service idea.
