MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – As you get ready for work, you probably aren’t even thinking about the clothes you’re putting on.

Imagine not having nice clothes to wear to your job or job interview. There are hundreds of people in the Twin Cities willing and able to work, but simply don’t have the nice clothing they need for a job interview.

Now, one non-profit organization in town is doing to help people look their best.

The workers at Episcopal Community Services run a clothing service called Ready for Success. They collect new and gently-used professional clothing and accessories for those who can’t afford them on their own means.

Clients there are treated like high-end shoppers, and walk out with so much more than a wardrobe.
