A heartfelt message from Working Wardrobes founder and CEO Jerri Rosen

Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday season – a time to gather with loved ones, appreciate each other, and share warmth and joy. Sadly, this year is unlike anything we’ve seen before. We can only pray that a year like this never returns.

Many of us will probably not be having a traditional Thanksgiving celebration because COVID has disrupted so much. It has ravaged the lives of our clients and millions more who live here in Orange County. So many are facing job losses, financial hardships, and uncertainty.

Under normal circumstances, our loved ones could bring us in for a big hug and tell us, “It’s going to be o.k.” But with much-needed social distancing and safety precautions, the pandemic has robbed us of the hugs we desperately want and need right now.

First and foremost, please know how grateful we are for your support. Please also know that we appreciate your kindness and generosity, this season and all year long.

We realize that traditional get-togethers will likely not happen this year, but give-togethers have the power to change lives. On December 1st, this Giving Tuesday, all we ask is that you support Working Wardrobes as your charity of choice and if you aren’t investing in a holiday party, please consider investing in our clients.

Nothing unites a group and soothes the soul like supporting a common cause and spreading holiday spirit to those in need.

If you’re safely seeing loved ones during the holidays, make sure you get in a few extra hugs!!!

If you can, please also give our clients extra hugs, too, and think of us on December 1st.

Gratitude means so much more this year, and words alone cannot express how grateful I am for you.

If I could, I would give each and every one of you a hug as my personal, heartfelt “thank you.” For now, a virtual hug is all I can do…and it’s being sent your way!

Have a warm and delicious Thanksgiving holiday.
