Suit Up For Success
Short Term Emergency Aid Committee (STEAC) works in partnership with All Things Right and Relevant (R&R). Trained volunteers, or "personal shoppers", meet clients by appointment at R&R to select clothing or other items for a new job or interview. To qualify, clients must be referred to Suit Up for Success by social service agencies. To volunteer to train and serve as a personal shopper, contact STEAC at (530) 758-8435.
How you can help
If you would like to contribute to STEAC, you can consign items into the STEAC account. While bringing in business attire broadens the options clients have when they come in, STEAC appreciates all consignment items. When bringing in items for STEAC, please observe the following rules:
- Must be done during consignment times (Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays). Items are not accepted on donation days (Wednesdays, Fridays).
- Can bring up to 10 items per consignment day.
- You don't have to fill out the form, but it is appreciated if you do.
- Bringing in items for STEAC doesn't count towards bringing in 10 items for your personal account.
How Suit Up for Success Works
Clients can call the STEAC office to make an appointment. Each meets their personal shopper at R&R at the scheduled date and time. After their initial interview, each client will receive clothing, depending on cost.
As of 2/1/2007 STEAC has helped over 200 clients through Suit Up. Surveys indicate that over 70% of the clients got jobs after their Suit Up appointment.
