Nina Campbell 0 4276

JOLIET – Ever look into your closet and bemoan that you’ve “got nothing to wear?” Imagine looking into an almost-empty closet and knowing there was nothing there to wear for a job interview or to go to work.  For some job seekers, that’s the reality. With help from those who have enough to share, there is a way to help them get back in the workforce confident about what they’re wearing.  Will County’s Workforce Services Division is looking for donations to restock its Clothes4Work clothing closet.
