Otter Outfitters offers business clothing to students

California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) held a clothing drive for students on campus on Monday, Feb. 7. 

Hosted by the CSUMB Alumni Association, clothes were donated from outside sources within the community to be quarantined and sorted through for safety and quality concerns before being offered to students. 

Otter Outfitters is a program funded by the Women’s Leadership Council. Its goal is to provide professional clothing for students and alumni who may not have access to appropriate clothing for interviews, internships, senior capstones, career day events, or other professional projects.

“We have a warehouse full of clothes that’s been overstocked during quarantine,” noted Briana Garcia, the program lead of the event. “We have a lot to give out!”

The event was set up outside of the Otter Student Union with coat racks full of quality business clothes including blazers, tops, and pants. All articles of clothing were free to take.

“I’m applying for a lot of jobs right now, but I don’t really have the money to go out and shop for something nice,” said Ivan Martinez, a second year student at CSUMB. “It’ll be nice if I can find some slacks to wear to my interviews.”

Otter Outfitters accepts donations of clean, professional clothing from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. To learn more about Otter Outfitters or how to donate, check out https://csumb.edu/womensleadershipcouncil/otter-outfitters/
