Forever Living Clothes Closet celebrated its grand opening at the Arthur Edington Center to benefit residents of Asheville Housing who are actively seeking employment.
The Clothes Closet will provide residents with appropriate attire for job interviews.
“During a job interview first impressions are lasting, and applicants are judged in part on their appearance,” said Clothes Closet founder Stephanie Maewether. “In addition to business attire, we will assist families with clothing in cases of emergencies. The clothes closet is a nonprofit venture and will not charge for an outfit. Proof of some type will be required in order to get assistance. My prayer is for this closet to remain open and functioning for as long as the Arthur Edington Training Center stays open.”
The Clothes Closet will be open each Tuesday and Thursday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.; donations will be accepted on Monday only, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Once the project is up and running, Maewether will seek additional volunteers.
