Volunteer Opportunity - Grace Institute

You are invited to volunteer to help the Grace Institute with its bi-annual Dress with Grace event.  

Dress with Grace allows up to 7 WBC volunteers per shift. From May 21st to May 24th, volunteers will prepare stylish looks for Grace women by helping to sort and organize clothing and accessories for the Grace Institute’s collection. On May 29th and May 30th, volunteers will help participants “shop” for their new business wardrobe and keep the racks organized. You can help boost a woman's confidence with your fashion expertise, and if you have ever wanted to be a visual merchandiser, this volunteer opportunity is for YOU. On June 3rd and June 4th, volunteers will help breakdown the “boutique”.
