Host a Clothing Drive in support of WHW Job Seekers!
WHW (Women Helping Women)
Host a clothing drive in support of WHW Job Seekers! Job seekers appreciate the generosity of those who gift apparel and in-kind items to support their job search. Clothing, accessories, personal care items, and business and leadership books from individuals and partners enable us to deliver quality programs to support the employment journey.
New or gently loved wares in-action-for-others
Professional Apparel and Accessories: WHW prepares women and men to be successful in their job search by helping them achieve a professional image with professional clothing and accessories. This is only made possible through the generosity of the community. A job seeker has about seven seconds to make a great first impression and WHW teaches participants to make the most of those seconds!
Casual and High-end Apparel and Accessories: Deja New is WHW’s social enterprise retail shop which features designer, high-end and casual name brand women’s and men’s fashions and financially supports the mission of WHW. One of the Top Ten Thrift Stores in Orange County according to Yelp, Deja New also helps to keep WHW’s mission top of mind in the community!
Items made of cloth: Apparel donations that are not appropriate for our job seekers or for our retail shop as well as donations made of fabric (sheets, towels, curtains, etc.) are sold to a local textile recycler. The funds are then used to support WHW programs. The best part is that these items are used again and kept out of our landfills!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About WHW (Women Helping Women)

Since 1993, Women Helping Women has focused on one thing...preparing people to secure good paying jobs. We guide individuals to pathways of possibility with proven programs and services provided at no charge. Facilitated employment readiness webinars, one-on-one job search assistance, resource sharing, professional apparel and supplemental tools have helped thousands of women, men and youth confidently navigate the job market maze with success.
We are workforce development professionals who help those facing real barriers navigate an uneven job landscape. We proudly enter the equity space to contribute to a more just and verdant society. Our intentional focus is serving women who are domestic abuse survivors, human trafficking victims, formerly incarcerated, foster youth and housing insecure. However, we also serve all job seekers and have very robust programs catering specifically to men and male youth. For 27 years, we have served job seekers in need at no charge, many of whom are referred by over 60 non-profits - achieving "true" wraparound services for the individuals involved. Our applied expertise allows those who have endured some of life’s harshest realities a new way forward where they own their self-sufficiency and economic mobility. Their upward trajectory and success is our great reward!
