Kathryn Morrison is a U.S. Army Veteran, having proudly served our country for over eight years.
Kathryn returned from service to the Orange County civilian workforce as an office manager and executive assistant for a busy staffing agency. However, as a single mother struggling to make ends meet, she had absolutely no money for professional clothing to look her best on the job.
Then, Kathryn learned about Working Wardrobes and the nonprofit’s Southern California Hanger Stores, particularly the Working Wardrobes Hanger Boutique in Tustin. There, Kathryn says she found beautiful merchandise that seemingly “custom fit” her small frame, in addition to a “warm and welcoming” staff that made her feel right at home.
Beyond affordable apparel and helpful sales associates, Kathryn says she found a mission she believes in and a cause she is more than happy to support.
“Working Wardrobes’ stores are definitely a place to look your very best, but there is so much purpose behind the beautiful clothes, shoes, and accessories,” Kathryn said. “The minute you walk in, you can tell the staff really cares about people, as individuals, and they really care about the overall mission of helping at-risk members of our community find jobs. I love shopping at the Hanger Boutique in Tustin instead of Nordstrom or Macy’s. I’d much rather buy amazing merchandise for a purpose.”
