The Lisle Convention & Visitors Bureau is currently holding a woman’s business attire clothing drive, now through Dec. 31. In partnership with Poised for Success, the clothing drive is aiding in the promotion of economic self-sufficiency in women. 
 
“It may seem obvious but the right set of clothes can make or break a job interview,” says Diane Homolka, Lisle CVB executive director. “However, many disadvantaged women just don’t have the means to go out and buy business clothes when they are unemployed. That’s why initiatives like Poised for Success are so important.”
 
This initiative asks donors for suits and other professional attire including, but not limited to, blazers, blouses, skirts, shoes, scarves, jewelry, winter boots, and suit pants. All donations should be gently used, clean and ready for women to wear. It is also important that the clothing be of current style. A collection box will be at Lisle Convention & Visitors Bureau office location- Lisle Village Hall lobby, 925 Burlington Avenue- from October 1 – December 31st. The Lisle CVB will take donations to Poised for Success, 312 S. Westmore/Meyers Rd., Lombard.
