CALE and The Caltech Y are hosting our annual professional clothing drive from now until end of March 2024. Our mission is to enable our students to confidently dress for success in their career journey, whether it be their first interview or first job! All clothing donations will be for our students to "shop" during the Spring term (no money will be exchanged; students will be able to pick out outfits completely free of charge).

Last year, we hosted professional clothing day on Olive Walk and had some spiffy dressed students at the end. Your contributions help set our students up for their next step.

For health and safety concerns, please only donate professional attire in good and clean condition.

What should I donate?

  • Ties
  • Bowties
  • Trousers
  • Dress pants
  • Blouses
