The August event runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and focuses on new residents, including immigrants and refugees. This event is in partnership with the Nationalities Services Center, but all are welcome to attend.

Founded in 1995, The Wardrobe, formerly known as The Working Wardrobe and Career Wardrobe, is a nonprofit that has helped more than 90,000 people overcome barriers to employment, such as clothing insecurity. They offer clothes priced to match any budget, as well as free clothing for those who qualify.
