Ahead of Make a Difference Day on October 26, the VISTA Collaborative at WVU's Center for Service and Learning is partnering with WV Women Moving Forward to host a Ready for Work Clothing Drive from October 14-25. The drive will connect local non-profits with in-demand professional items to help West Virginians secure a job or stay at work. Donations will be provided to Christian Help, Starting Points Family Resource Center and United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties.
