Greenville, OH June 18, 2015 Stephanie Llacuna, Development Manager for Clothes That Work was the guest speaker at the Greenville Business & Professional Women’s Club (BPW) at their monthly meeting on Thursday, June 11, 2015 at the Brethren Retirement Center in Greenville, OH.

The meeting was hosted by the recently elected club officers: President Deb Smith, Vice President Brenda Miller, Secretary Jane Carroll, Treasurer Dorothy Poeppelman, and Assistant Treasurer Susan Fowble.

Clothes That Work was formed in 1998 according to Ms. Llacuna. Their intent is to provide interview and work appropriate clothing for women transitioning from public assistance to employment. Job seekers are referred to them by a network of thirty-six community partners and are provided one-on-one appointments with a volunteer personal coach that assists them through the process of selecting interview appropriate clothing and offer guidance on how to make a good impression. All clothes are donated. The Greenville BPW club collected clothing to donate to the agency. Stephanie stated they also offer educational training programs to teach those looking for a job and to maintain a job. They hold fundraisers during the year and accept donations to sustain the program. They are located in Dayton, OH. They can be contacted through

The Greenville BPW Club’s mission is to achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education, and information. The Club meets the second Thursday of every month for a dinner meeting. Those interested in learning more about the Club can contact Membership Chair Tasha Anderson at or at 937/621-4569.
