Volunteer Pool

We are in need of volunteers who are interested in volunteering with Dress for Success Cincinnati on an occasional or as-needed basis. We have events and programs that require additional hands for that particular function, but not on an ongoing or daily basis.  We are compiling a pool of people we could call on as needed, but who would not be obligated to say “yes” to the call for help!  This is a great opportunity for those who travel frequently. If you are interested in exploring this option, please complete the Volunteer Information Form above.
