TROY, MICHIGAN – Doeren Mayhew, Troy-based certified public accounting and management consulting firm, announced today that their Women’s Initiative Group successfully concluded a month long clothing drive for Lighthouse of Oakland County’s CareerDress.
Laurie Horvath, co-chair of the Doeren Mayhew Women’s Initiative Group, said, “As a group of women working together to promote women in the workplace, a connection with CareerDress felt like the best fit for our charitable drive.” “We were overwhelmed with interest and donations, and very pleased to donate more than 200 items to CareerDress this week,” added Horvath.
John Ziraldo, President and CEO of Lighthouse of Oakland County thanked Doeren Mayhew for their generous contributions. “Career Dress is an entirely volunteer run organization that provides appropriate clothing and accessories to women entering the job market who do not have the resources to obtain their own career wear,” said Ziraldo. “Often times, appropriate dress is the largest obstacle preventing career-ready women from entering the workforce,” added Ziraldo. “Donations and support from firms like Doeren Mayhew are vital to helping these women confidently enter the job market.”
