The Power of a Paycheck
A single story can make a difference. At Working Wardrobes, we get the opportunity to witness the power that a paycheck has to transform a person’s life, and we are looking for members of our community to reflect on the power that a paycheck has had in their own lives. Share with us the story of your first paycheck, and read the first paycheck stories of influential individuals in our community. Share your story here

Working Wardrobes hosts several types of corporate drives: clothing drives, accessory drives, luxury item drives, and winter item drives, to name a few. Our clients’ needs change throughout the year, so contact us to discuss the most appropriate type of drive for your group. We host two clothing drives monthly, so be sure to book ahead.
We will travel to Camp Pendleton to serve Marines who are transitioning into the civilian workforce. Working Wardrobes, along with a team of volunteers, host a career panel, workshops, and a job fair, followed by rotations through wardrobe selection and professional pictures. We’re excited to see what these deserving men and women will accomplish in the future with our help. For more information, preview last year’s event.
