We need volunteers to help specifically Thursday, March 30th from 5-8pm.

Support Dress for Success Ottawa’s Seasonal Sale by signing up to support the set-up and display of the SupportHER Sale! Help us turn our boutique space into a pop-up shop including cash registers, signs, and fitting rooms.

The main responsibility of this shift is to pack up all of the items the boutique is hiding from the sale for an easy return following the sale and begin to bring out the items that are specifically prepared for the sale. When you arrive you’ll be given a role and helped to register your car for free parking.

Location of Volunteerism: 200 Catherine St (Dress for Success Boutique)
