LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 14, 2019) — Are you interested in a unique service opportunity on campus? UK Student Government Association (SGA) is looking for volunteers to work in the Wildcat Wardrobe.

The Wildcat Wardrobe, which is located in the basement of White Hall, is a service that allows students to get free professional clothing. Students who bring in their student ID are allowed to take three items of clothing from the Wardrobe. The service is supported through donations from the Lexington community, and it offers suits, dresses, shirts, ties, socks and shoes for all.

Currently, the Wardrobe is open from 3 to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. If you need to schedule an alternate appointment time to pick out clothes, please email wildcatwardrobe@uksga.org.

Volunteers will be expected to work three hours a week in the Wardrobe. You will help collect donations, organize the Wardrobe, promote the service, and log inventory when students check out items. SGA is looking for students who have a passion for service, a positive attitude, and a desire to give back to the UK community!

If you are interested in getting involved as a volunteer, please apply on BBNvolved or email wildcatwardrobe@uksga.org for more info!

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion four years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for" three years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for five straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
