HUNTINGTON - The Peoples Bancorp Foundation, a nonprofit corporation formed to make donations in Peoples Bank market areas, recently announced it will continue its support of the Goodwill Industries of KYOWVA "Hire Attire" program with a $1,000 donation.

Goodwill Industries of KYOWVA Area, Inc. established an outreach program in 2014 called "Hire Attire" to address the community need for men's clothing and job development skills. This free service improves job sustainability by providing appropriate attire, resume writing, soft job skills training, and employable skills, which many individuals in the area lack.

The project serves to enhance the employability of 475 disadvantaged men in the nine-county region Goodwill of KYOWVA oversees. Recently, Goodwill of KYOWVA conducted a community assessment during which local employers reported job seekers were arriving at crucial interviews and meetings inappropriately dressed and lacking basic business etiquette. In response, the organization strategically designed its mobile "Hire Attire" program to provide clothing and education for men to secure a better quality of life for themselves and their families.
