Dress For Success Clothing Drive
Dress For Success Clothing Drive

Get more info about this event »

Description: "We invite you to participate in the “Dress for Success” clothing drive created by Addair Law summer interns. This drive will take place from July 25th through July 29th 2022, and this clothing will be donated to the K-State Career Closet for students in need of dress clothing. Donating old suits to the K-State Career Closet gives K-State students in need of dress clothes the ability to receive quality clothing at no cost for activities such as interviews and other professional events. We thought this would be a great way to give back and wanted to include the local law community. Below is a list of items that the K-State Career Closet suggests for donations: Men’s and women’s suits Blouses and shirts Men’s and women’s dress pants Belts, ties, accessories Gently worn shoes The Career Center asks that clothes are cleaned before donation and be of good to excellent quality. Additionally, they ask that they have been purchased within the last five years/current with fashion. Feel free to drop any donations at the Addair Law Office at 1600 Poyntz in Manhattan. If you want us to pick up your donations, please email or call (785) 706-4098 and ask for Sam or Hayden. We would be happy to stop by! If you are interested in making a monetary donation, you can follow the link below to the k-state career center: Donate Directly: As legal community members, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to give back to those who need it most. We are grateful for your support of this drive to provide opportunities for K-State students who may not otherwise have the chance to pursue." Submitted by: Tom Addair Addair Law

Description: Glenn Kappelman led an extraordinary life. A WWII veteran known for the photos he secretly took during the war, Mr. Kappelman later helped achieve the Lawrence Fair Housing Ordinance of 1967, supported social services such as the Women's Transitional Care Facility (today known as the Willow Domestic Violence Center), and worked with the Douglas County Historical Society as the city celebrated its centennial. Join us as we celebrate Glenn Kappelman's life and legacy. Speakers will talk about Mr. Kappelman and introduce his photographic collection housed at the Spencer Research Library. We'll also screen a short selection from the documentary "Through My Sights: A Gunner's View of World War II," about Mr. Kappelman's war service. Light refreshments will be available.
