“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” The preceding quote by British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill perfectly describes Dawn Hernandez, our volunteer extraordinaire at Working Wardrobes. Dawn started her journey with us nearly 3 years ago as an incredibly vibrant personal shopper, helping our clients find their perfect interview attire to achieve the dignity of work. Since then, she has graciously volunteered in a variety of other capacities Working Wardrobes including planning fundraising events, supporting our social enterprises, joining our women’s giving collaborative and becoming a donor. She goes beyond her call of duty every time she steps foot in our Career Center-whether it’s finding the perfect earrings to match an interview outfit, volunteering for yet another planning committee or attending our major fundraising events. Dawn deserves to be honored at the Spirit of Volunteerism Awards as her passion and dedication to our mission is exemplary and is the light that fuels our work. We feel so lucky to have her as part of our team!
