Is it possible to get an outfit that you could wear to a job interview at Goodwill for under $30?
I work with a group in Muncie called Teamwork for Quality Living that matches up members of the community who are trying to get out of poverty (captains) with other members of the community (allies). Together we break down the barriers that can keep someone living in poverty. One of those barriers might be: “I can’t afford nice clothes to get a good job.”
Teamwork teamed up with Ball State University’s fashion department to bust that myth.
(Note: this is about the only time you’ll see me wearing a sports coat.)
