“Since we film in New York City, it seemed fitting to donate the clothes to Bottomless Closet and help women in our community to improve their lives,” stated Shawn Reeves, Guiding Light’s Costume Designer. “ High unemployment rates make it more crucial than ever for women to have the right outfits for job interviews and to remain competitive in the workplace.”

Guiding Light’s donation will become part of Bottomless Closet’s ‘boutique’ at the organization’s headquarters in the Hotel Pennsylvania. Women who are referred to Bottomless Closet receive two complete outfits prior to going on a scheduled job interview and can return for three more outfits once they find employment.

“We greatly appreciate Guiding Light’s generous donation, which will support our efforts to provide women with business attire so they can interview with confidence and enhance their self esteem,” said Kendall Farrell, Bottomless Closet’s Executive Director. “Our clients will have interview outfits literally fit for a leading lady.”
