Working Wardrobes Clothing Drive


Throughout the month of January, HBC held a clothing drive in both the OC and LA offices to benefit Working Wardrobes, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping disadvantaged individuals obtain employment. HBC employee-owners and their families brought in gently used professional clothes to donate to the organization, which ranged from business casual attire, formal suiting, shoes, and accessories. In total, HBC donated over 650 items of clothing. With these items, Working Wardrobes will provide styling services to people facing employment barriers and, ultimately, arm these people with the skills and confidence needed to achieve the dignity of work and build lasting economic stability for themselves and their families. The recent clothing drive is just one of the many ways that HBC has partnered with Working Wardrobes. Our Talent Acquisition & Development specialist, Agnes Cimino, has been volunteering with them since November, providing career counseling, including mock interviews, job search assistance, resume writing, and styling clients for their interviews. Working Wardrobes was also one of the recipients of HBC’s 2022 Choose Your Charity campaign.  ABOUT WORKING WARDROBES Working Wardrobes was founded in 1990 with a mission to help men, women, young adults, and Veterans to achieve the “dignity of work.” By partnering with local corporations, volunteers, and organizations, Working Wardrobes is able to offer the community a wide range of programs and services including: job search resources, skill workshops, customer service training, financial needs assistance, wardrobe services and styling, and job placement. Since opening their doors, they have helped over 100,000 individuals secure employment to provide for themselves and their families. Learn more about Working Wardrobes at
