    Guiding Light Donates Wardrobe To Charity.

    Wednesday, July 15 2009

    Guiding Light has announced that it will be donating a portion of its wardrobe to Bottomless Closet when the series ends. Bottomless Closet seeks to help disadvantaged New York City women become self-sufficient. They offer a comprehensive program that begins with business attire and interview preparation and continues with professional development, financial management and personal enrichment. Women referred to the organization receive two complete outfits before a job interview with the chance to return for three more after they have found employment. More than 1,600 New York City women will be outfitted in the Bottomless Closet boutique this year.

    This gesture continues the show's charitable tradition and reaches out to the surrounding community. "Since we film in New York City, it seemed fitting to donate the clothes to Bottomless Closet and help women in our community to improve their lives," Shawn Reeves, Guiding Light’s Costume Designer said. Bottomless Closet will receive the show's stock of women's business clothing, shoes, jewelry, handbags and accessories. These will become part of their 'boutique' at the organization’s headquarters in the Hotel Pennsylvania.
