Bottomless Closet - NYC

Don't we all wish we had one of these!? Help underprivileged NY women get a fresh start. Drop off outgrown, tired-of, or could- never-find-the-right-match pants and other office-y clothes, shoes, bags, or jewelry to Bottomless Closet NYC. This nonprof gives disadvantaged women in New York a leg up on getting a nine-to-five, but it's not your typical Goodwill dumping ground. BC not only fits working girls-to-be with interview-appropriate outfits, plus three extras, but also preps them for interviews and hosts workshops on topics like networking and financial management. It also has a book club (this month's read: The Great Gatsby), and stays available for work-related questions and support even after they land a gig so that all bases are...covered.

Bottomless Closet NYC, 545 Eighth Ave. b/t 37th and 38th Sts., 12th Fl.; Drop-off times: M-F, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. or call (212-563-2499) for special arrangements.
