BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Women in the Baton Rouge area will get a chance to recycle the career clothes that they no longer want.

The Women in Media's annual Attire for Hire collection will take place on Saturday, April 18. Two Keans locations, one on Perkins near College Drive, and one on Jefferson at I-12.

The goal of the drive is to give struggling women the confidence to re-enter the workforce through professional clothes and outfits.

Keans owner Missy Rockenbaugh says that the donations should come on hangers. She also says that everyone who donates will get a coupon towards a future cleaning from the store.

The collection is in their tenth year, with this year's drive running from 9 a.m. to Noon on Saturday, April 18.
