Program provides professional clothing for NEO A&M students


NEO A&M and Phi Beta Lambda held an open house Friday showcasing Peggy's Closet, a program designed to help provide professional clothing to students who can't afford to buy them.

The program started two years ago and was named after Peggy Rhine, who came up with the idea.

Some teachers feel this program can help give students confidence and could help them find a job.

"I think as far as self-esteem, feeling good about what you're doing, and just feeling better about how you appear will raise your confidence, and plus it gives on the professional image to those that are interviewing them and hopefully giving them the edge," says Donna Hale, an adjunct instructor at NEO A&M.

If you would like to donate all you have to do is call the college.  Both men's and women's clothing, shoes and accessories are needed.
