We asked YOU to bring professional clothes to donate to The Locker at AB Tech that offers free clothing to students for interviews because you only get one chance to make a first impression. YOU did it. This is what AB Tech said: OMG! What a great outpouring! We put out the word that we had a wonderful "new" selection and the response has been great! Students are coming by daily and taking clothes. We simply cannot thank you enough!
Based on this success, we have decided to continue to collect for The Locker at AB Tech. Drop off your donation with a list of items and your contact information. The Locker will issue you a receipt for your taxes. Bring it on!
Free professional clothing available at The Locker
The Locker is a professional clothing closet that offers free men and women’s business attire to A-B Tech students and the Asheville community. Sponsored by A-B Tech’s Phi Beta Lambda chapter, The Locker includes an assortment of seasonal clothing, shoes and accessories.
“The Locker is a great way for students to prepare for their upcoming business careers without having to spend a lot of money on new clothing,” said Marlene Frisbee, Co-Adviser of Phi Beta Lambda, A-B Tech chapter.
Phi Beta Lambda is a national business organization that strives to guide and promote professional development. In opening and operating The Locker, Phi Beta Lambda hopes to serve their community by allowing for professional growth.
Gently used business clothes are donated to The Locker by businesses and individuals in the Asheville community. Phi Beta Lambda welcomes all members of the community to donate unwanted professional attire for all seasons to their project.
“Without community members willingly donating clothes they no longer wear, we would not be able to provide this service to our students and community,” said Frisbee.
