Textured hair care brand Strength of Nature Global, LLC has announced a year-long partnership with the Dress for Success organization to empower women by giving them the resources and tools to enter and succeed in the workplace. That powerful collaboration was put into full motion on May 9 at the 2015 Power Walk for Dress for Success event at Riverside Park in New York City, where nearly $250,000 was raised for women in need.
Founded in 1997, Dress for Success is an international non profit organization that promotes economic independence for disadvantaged women. They provide clients with professional attire and career development tools to help them thrive in their chosen careers and in life.
In its partnership, Strength of Nature, which includes the Beautiful Textures and African Pride brands, will donate hair care products to Dress for Success affiliates in cities nationwide to help clients look and feel their best.
