2023 Recipient: Career Clothing Giveaway, University of Akron
The clothing giveaway initiative was a response to student feedback to the Campus Cupboard, a program of ZipAssist, which is the student advocacy and support office. Partnerships with three area businesses resulted in the execution of a large-scale clothing giveaway on campus; this included space to house over 600 pieces of clothing and accessories, as well as sorting and hanging the items on donated clothing racks using hundreds of donated clothes hangers. The event itself served 232 students, providing them with professional dress items to bolster the success of their professional and academic endeavors.
