Donate professional clothing and accessories at the annual Suits for Success drive to support career advancement at UAB and beyond

Suits for Success supplies several tons of clothing not only to women but also to students and patients in need, empowering them to confidently avail employment opportunities and advance their careers.

CSW Chairs TKJoin the Commission on the Status of Women at the University of Alabama at Birmingham for the annual Suits for Success from 7 a.m.-12 p.m. Thursday and Friday, April 11-12, by donating work-appropriate attire and help support students, patients and women in need.
