Clothing Drive Part of National Spherion Program to Help People be Work Ready in 2020
Reading, PA – The Reading office of Spherion, a national recruiting, staffing and workforce solutions provider, is launching a Workforce Clothing Drive in the month of March to help individuals in need of work attire start the new year off ready to achieve their career goals. This is part of a nationwide program in which more than 40 Spherion offices across the U.S. are partnering with local charities that have a focus on donations of clothing for a variety of workplace settings from office/clerical to industrial.
The Reading office of Spherion is working to collect clothing for Pottstown Works. In 2017, Pottstown Works was established as a program of The Salvation Army of Pottstown to bring people out of poverty by helping them overcome barriers to work. Local companies are looking for reliable workers who show up prepared and ready to work. The goal of Pottstown Works is to provide for the local workforce and boost economic development.
“Spherion is committed to making a difference in the local area,” said Phil Frassinelli, owner, Spherion Reading. “Our Workforce Clothing Drive helps address a need while also aligning with our Spherion company focus of putting people to work.”
If you live in or near Reading and would like to participate in our Workforce Clothing Drive, please drop your items to our Spherion Reading office, which is located at 4 Park Plaza, Suite #300 in Wyomissing.
The Workforce Clothing Drive is an extension of Spherion’s annual Community Giveback program, which kicks off each year in November and focuses on giving to a variety of charities that address community challenges around issues such as hunger, homelessness, youth development, family services and healthcare, among others. As of 2019, Spherion has given a total of $1 million to local charities through its Community Giveback program since the program began in 2014.
Spherion operates in around 200 markets across the country providing recruiting and staffing services for professional services such as IT, engineering, finance and accounting as well as industrial and administrative positions.
