Streeter: This holiday season give from the front of your closet

November 28, 2022

Give from the front of your closet, not the back. It’s a concept I first heard in 2019 when I interviewed Joi Gordon, the then-worldwide CEO of Dress for Success, for the Palm Beach Post. “Some people might think, ‘She should be grateful for what she gets.’ But no,” Gordon said of Dress For Success’ clientele, women reentering the workforce and in need of employment counseling, advice and clothing for interviews. “We want these women to do a victory lap around the room because you went into your closet and gave her your best.” That’s been on my mind as we hurtle into the warm, jolly season of giving back. The way I see it, giving your best is about more than the newness and niceness of the clothes, housewares and electronics we donate to those who need them.
