"Giving Tuesday" is coming up quickly on Tuesday, December 1st. It's an international day of giving back, and we knew you would be interested in an opportunity to provide greatly needed clothing to some very deserving young women! Would you consider sponsoring one at-risk young woman at $100 to receive our unique Top Buttons Wearing Confidence Program? Through our program, these young women receive confidence boosting educational sessions, new wardrobes of proper fitting clothing, and much more. Did you know we provide our Wearing Confidence Program to the young ladies of PACE Center for Girls, Porch Light, Heartland for Children, Youth Villa, the Dream Center, Girls Inc, and More?
WHAT TOP BUTTONS HAS MEANT TO PACE CENTER FOR GIRLS, POLK:
"PACE Center for Girls, Polk has had the privilege of a partnership with the amazing Top Buttons organization. The collaboration between the two non-profit programs, has benefited the PACE girls in a myriad of ways. Every month, several of our girls are able to participate in the Top Buttons Wearing Confidence Program at the Top Buttons Boutique. There they learn many necessary skills while having a good time with the wonderful staff. The Top Buttons team teaches girls how to dress appropriately for a variety of occasions, while maintaining their own sense of style. Girls have the opportunity to try on an assortment of clothing and accessories through which they take new wardrobes of quality clothing for free. This exercise allows girls to have a hands-on experience while receiving input from the staff. As part of the program, professionals teach girls how to apply make-up and style their hair in a trendy but appropriate manner. The Top Buttons staff also comes to the PACE Center to educate our girls about topics surrounding self-esteem and positive body image. These experiences have meant a great deal to the PACE girls. Through a meaningful approach, they are receiving valuable guidance. Girls return to school after visiting the program elated and with increased self-esteem. They also share what they have learned with their peers. Girls within the PACE program, are now working diligently to earn the privilege of this experience. It is something they all strive to be a part of. A big "Believing in Girls" thank you to the Top Buttons non-profit organization for your investment in the girls at PACE Center for Girls, Polk!"
