Support Dress for Success D.C. by donating women's professional attire during the 4th Congressional Dress for Success Challenge on Thursday, September 12.
With drop off points on the House and Senate sides, the chambers will face off once again to see who can outfit more Dress for Success clients during this friendly suit donation challenge. Dress for Success, FedEx and Honorary Co-Chairwomen Senator Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and Representative Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.) invite you to join the challenge by donating.
The House earned the winning title in 2012 and 2009 while the Senate was named challenge winner in 2010. There will be heated competition at this year's event to determine whether the House can hold its title or if the Senate will bring the congressional challenge to a tie!
