Leadership students sponsor fashion show and clothing drive for Jana's Closet

04/17/14
"Women Helping Women," a fashion show sponsored by Fort Hays State University's Leadership 310 students, will be Saturday, April 26, in Cody Commons on the lower level of the Memorial Union.

The event is free and open to anyone. Casey Rohleder, former marketing specialist at FHSU, will assist with resume tips and revisions beginning at 4 p.m. The show begins at 4:30 p.m.

Jana's Closet provides "gently worn" professional clothing to women as they prepare to enter or re-enter the work force. The show will promote the clothing that Jana's Closet has available for clients.

"As a young women's advocate, Jana (Mackey) would spend a lot of time trying to help women in need by getting them professional attire," said Lizette Avalos, Liberal junior. "Continuing her work became the foundation for Jana's Closet."

The team will sponsor a clothing drive from April 21 through April 25. Professional clothing -- gently used -- can be dropped off at the Department of Leadership Studies, Rarick Hall, room 235, or at Trinity Lutheran Church, 2703 Fort, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
