We couldn’t be more proud of our very own Anna Connell who is doing some incredible work with Dress for Success Oregon to empower women to earn a living wage as construction flaggers. Want to join Anna in making a difference? Anna is raising money for her cause and any donation will help make an impact.
Anna Connell is the Dress for Success Oregon (DFSO) Community Action Project (CAP) delegate for 2019-2020. As an active member/client of DFSO Anna has been selected to create a project designed to empower other women. She is a certified flagging instructor and has designed a program where she will train and certify women as flaggers in the construction field. As a part of this project, she is seeking donations to help secure the appropriate apparel required for accepting a flagging position.
Dress for Success Oregon is a non-profit workforce development organization, helping women overcome barriers to employment, prepare for work, keep their jobs, and advance in their careers toward independence and self-sufficiency. Their mission is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Every year they have many fundraising events and projects supported by businesses and community members. They could not have the profound impact they have without this support.
Please consider donating to Anna’s project to help 10 or more women get certification and the necessary items to start a new career in flagging, a career that can truly support a women and her family. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
