Winter Coat Drive Benefiting Women Giving Back


With the cold weather already setting in, VMSI is proud to lend its support to the charitable efforts of Women Giving Back (WGB) with a winter clothing drive! VMSI employees will be collecting winter clothing for women and children, specifically coats, throughout the months of October and November, in addition to spreading the word about this fantastic organization!

Women Giving Back is a Washington DC Metropolitan area-based organization that provides free clothing to women and children living in shelters throughout Loudoun and Fairfax Counties. WGB has a widespread impact on our community and we are proud to assist with donations of winter clothing and to also volunteer at the WGB storefront and warehouse to help sort and hang clothing donated by individuals and local businesses.

From their website, “WGB’s mission is more than clothes – their committed volunteers provide personal service and uplifting interaction in a unique boutique-like atmosphere, focused on helping women arrive at a level of self-confidence that enables them to improve their lives and achieve independence. The increased self-esteem that comes from securing and maintaining employment not only helps individual women, but contributes to stable families, which, in turn, improves the viability and safety of our communities.”
