After 15 successful years of providing job interview clothing and workplace appropriate attire to London area job seekers, a decision has been made to close ClothingWorks effective April 1, 2014.
After careful consideration by the Board of Directors at WIL Employment Connections, it was clear the service delivery model developed by the community in 1998 was not sustainable over the long term. Over the past three years, WIL has worked with community partners and the ClothingWorks Steering Committee to identify and secure new sustainable revenue streams to support the continuation of the project. While some progress was made to achieve this outcome, it was determined that the project would continue to have a substantial deficit over the coming years.
Everyone at WIL would like to thank our community partners for their support of ClothingWorks. This was a difficult decision for our Board to make, but it is our hope that another community agency may be interested in providing a similar service. We will actively engage and support these conversations should any community partners be interested. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Devin Munro at WIL Employment Connections at 519-663-0774.
