Cherry Hill, NJ. Getting a job interview is a momentous step in searching for a new career, but what if you don’t have the right clothes to wear to the interview? And what if you are short on funds to buy something new?

At Harris School of Business in Cherry Hill, the staff has started a lending closet to help students who may not be able to afford interview attire at this stage in their lives. “We don’t want anyone to miss the opportunity for an interview just because they feel they can’t afford an appropriate outfit,” explains April Lupinacci, campus director of the Cherry Hill branch of Harris School.

Medical scrubs are another key item in the lending closet. At Harris, students in the medical assistant program wear scrubs as they are learning their new clinical skills. “Scrubs aren’t something that the average person already owns in their wardrobe,” Lupinacci continues, “so most of our students need to purchase them, and for some students, this isn’t always easy.”

Donations to the lending closet have come from staff members, fellow students, and former students. Anyone wishing to donate new or gently used clothing may contact April Lupinacci at 856-662-5300.

As one of the region’s accredited business schools, Harris School of Business operates seven campuses in the Delaware Valley. Founded in 1965, Harris provides career-focused education to adults, specializing in medical assistant programs, medical billing courses, massage therapy courses, dental assistant training, and other career areas.
