Donate Clothing

Unemployment, underemployment  and domestic violence are still at alarmingly high levels yet there are few to no resources to assist women in their search for work and resolution of a domestic violence situation. These women may be changing careers, returning to work after years at home or rebuilding their lives after an experience of continued domestic abuse. To be able to interview in proper attire and build self-esteem makes a big difference in the impression made on a prospective employer and in a woman’s day to day life. The center partners with Greater Hickory Cooperative Christian Ministry to provide clothing appropriate to wear for job searches and interviewing.

Donate Pantry Products

The Personal Pantry at the Women’s Resource Center provides women and their families with the basics, such as personal hygiene and cleaning products, that can’t be purchased with food assistance programs. It is challenging to rely solely upon financial donations to help keep the pantry stocked with these basic necessities.  At times monies that could be used to help a woman with job search transportation costs (bus passes and gas cards) must be used to purchase tampons, toilet paper or laundry detergent.

Women's Resource Center empowers women through workforce development, advocacy, enrichment programs and community partnerships.
