Laura Fortgang, the Verona resident who is running for New Jersey state Assembly from the 26th electoral district, is sponsoring a Dress For Success clothing drive on Saturday, May 13.

Dress For Success collects gently used business attire for disadvantaged women who are entering or re-entering the workforce to achieve economic independence and stability.

Fortgang’s event is collecting gently used, in-season business-appropriate skirts, pants, jackets, blouses/shells, shoes, hand bags, jewelry and new pantyhose. Clothing must be delivered on hangers in dry-cleaning bags, or neatly folded in boxes or bags. The event cannot accept casual clothing, men’s or children’s clothing, or clothing in poor condition. Larger sizes are most needed but all will do.
