Acara Clothing Drive Kicks off in September

For the month of September, Acara Solutions will be working with employees, partners, and clients to host a professional clothing drive in tandem with Dress for Success, Goodwill, and other charities.

The initiative will support job seekers who are facing hardships as they enter or re-enter the workforce. Our goal is to collect gently used clothing donations that will help people transition to new opportunities, build thriving careers, and achieve professional and personal success.

Acara Solutions will be spearheading the effort with friends and customers across our national network of locations with support from other Aleron companies.

To participate in the drive, contact an Acara Solutions location near you.
