As a community-driven organization, Wings for Success
is able to assist disadvantaged women from our local
neighborhoods in large part due to the volunteers who
donate their time, skills and love. Within a highly appreciative
and rewarding environment, Wings tailors each volunteer’s
role to her interests and background. Volunteer opportunities include the following:
"I love it when I get a client who is as excited about clothes as I am. It's great fun, and the transformations are amazing. And I'm so deeply touched by how hard these women are trying to improve their lives. When I tell them I believe in them, I really mean it."
