There are many ways to volunteer at Dress for Success Austin, including:
- Becoming a Personal Shopper
- Sorting and merchandise donations
- Helping assist with Professional Women's Group (PWG) meetings
- Mentoring a client, become a trainer or a guest speaker
- Assisting with client interview preparation
- Asking your company to become a sponsor
- Organizing a suit-drive at your office or community center

If you don't have time to volunteer or clothing to donate, DFSA has also set up their very own Amazon Wishlist that you can shop from. Items on the list are much needed by DFSA for its clients as they are rarely donated and can be shipped directly to them!
