Earth Day clothing drive

Join us in celebrating Earth Day by giving back to our community and supporting UAF students!

Career Services is collecting donations from April 22-26 to build a Career Closet open to students in fall 2024. Drop off donations of lightly used, clean clothes that you no longer wear in anytime from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Eielson 304 in the Career Services office on the Troth Yeddha' campus.

What is a Career Closet?
The Career Closet will be a place where students can find new and gently used professional attire for interviews, networking events, everyday wear for
jobs, and more. The goal of the Career Closet is to remove financial barriers that may prevent students from looking and feeling their best during the
internship and job search process.

What should you bring?
From business casual to professional attire, we welcome all types of clothing donations suitable for work in every industry! From clothing to shoes and
accessories, your contributions can make a difference.
