Day of Transformation Transformed
This year, the Day of Transformation is undergoing a transformation of its own. The DOT committee, led by Brooke Barrett, and consisting of women from HACC’s Gettysburg Campus; South Central Community Action Programs; Survivors, Inc.; the Margaret Trew Cline Foundation; the United Way of Adams County; the YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County; and Wellspan Hospital decided that this previously one-day only event should be expanded to an everyday opportunity.
This was done in an attempt to reach a larger audience of women who might need help getting ready to enter or re-enter the job market throughout the year and not just at the time of our scheduled event. With referrals from partnering organizations, the Gettysburg Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop will offer up to three free outfits as well as accessories to women. HACC Gettysburg will include vouchers that can be used to schedule appointments for career counseling, resume writing, and interview prepping services.
If you are an individual with professional or business-casual women’s clothing, handbags, accessories, and jewelry to donate, please take these to the Gettysburg Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop at 10 Lincoln Square in Gettysburg during business hours (Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) throughout the year, and specify that you are contributing for Day of Transformation.
Donations to the Gettysburg Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop for the Day of Transformation should be seasonal and neatly folded or on hangers, which are available at the thrift shop if needed. Clothing should be unstained (underarms, collars ,etc.), odor free, and not in need of mending. Size and care tags should be intact. Shoes and purses should be unscuffed.
Sponsored by HACC-Gettysburg, Margaret Trew Cline Foundation, South Central Community Action Programs, Survivors, Inc., the United Way of Adams County, WellSpan, and the YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County.
