Since 1982, the Center for Work Education and Employment (CWEE) has worked to combat poverty by providing personal and professional development opportunities for single parents in need. To accomplish its goal of empowering individuals to succeed as both parents and professionals, the Colorado nonprofit works alongside a number of local organizations.

One of CWEE’s long-standing partners, Zonta Club of Denver II, has been instrumental to the operations of CWEE’s 1st Impressions Boutique. Facilitated entirely by donations, the boutique provides business casual and business professional attire for both men and women. It not only helps CWEE participants build their professional wardrobes, but also serves as a source of renewed self-esteem.

As a professional organization dedicated to advancing the social and professional status of women, Zonta Club of Denver II played an integral role in establishing the 1st Impressions Boutique and regularly contributes to it. Donations from Zonta Club members have allowed the boutique  to provide CWEE participants with gift cards to purchase items that they may have difficulty finding at 1st Impressions, such as undergarments, maternity clothing, plus-size items, and shoes. The organization regularly donates clothing to the boutique and assists with restocking and maintaining it. Each holiday season, Zonta Club of Denver II also donates gift cards for boutique patrons’ teenage children.
