CLIFTON, N.J., Jan. 20, 2014 – Accounting and business development consulting firm BST hosted a successful winter clothing drive for Dress for Success, a non-profit that provides professional attire and support for disadvantaged women. BST’s women’s group, Professional Organization of Women Empowerment and Results (P.O.W.E.R.), led the effort, which brought in nearly 100 wardrobe items.
