Thirty employees of Irvine, Calif.-based accounting firm White Nelson Diehl Evans participated in an event Jan. 17 supporting Santa Ana-based nonprofit Women Helping Women/Men2Work, which aims to empower individuals to secure economic self-sufficiency through employment success.

The group, including four partners and 12 newly hired employees, sorted clothes for WHW’s “Quarterly Saturday Sale.”

“It was a successful event,” stated WNDE employee Kyle Stevens. “We were able to build camaraderie with our fellow employees, and make a positive difference in our community.”

WHW, founded in 1993, provides its more than 5,000 clients annually with professional clothing and image consulting services, job placement assistance, educational workshops, computer training and transportation.  

“We really like WHW’s mission,” stated WNDE staff member Erin Johnson. “Rather than providing, per se, a fish for a day, the organization helps individuals learn to fish for a lifetime through employment in various careers. They give those they serve the opportunity to become self-sufficient, and a way for them to be proud of their accomplishments.”

According to WHW staff member Robyn Williams, a “record-breaking” number of shoppers came to the Quarterly Saturday Sale, with WHW raising $12,000 to support “challenged job seekers on their journey to self-sufficiency.”

“This is the most we have raised since we moved to our location in Santa Ana,” Williams stated. “[The WNDE] team was an instrumental part of our success.”
