Non-profit Helping People Get a Fresh Start in the Workforce Receives a Facelift on CTV on Sunday, February 21st at 8pm PT/ET
Working Gear, a non-profit organization helping those seeking employment to find the clothing and gear they need for the job, is being featured on CTV’s Holmes Family Effect on Sunday, February 21st.
Holmes Family Effect follows TV icon and professional contractor Mike Holmes, his daughter Sherry, and son Michael, as they tackle their most important projects to date. Inspired by people who are making a difference in their communities, each episode sees the Holmes family surprise these deserving people by transforming their spaces.
In Sunday’s episode, Mike Holmes and his family surprise the Working Gear team at their Vancouver shop. With a mandate to relieve poverty, Working Gear provides office and industry clothing free of charge to help low income and unemployed individuals in the Lower Mainland find work. Working Gear’s team of volunteers, led by Director Sarah Beley, help clients find anything from construction clothing and steel-toed boots to business casual attire and suits.
“We’re so excited to be able to share our story and highlight the work we’re doing in the community,” said Sarah Beley. “Working Gear operates on a shoestring budget and we’ve had our fair share of struggles over the years. To have the Holmes family tell us they’re proud of the work we’re doing, and give us their support, was incredible. It was a truly unforgettable experience.”
The episode airs on Sunday, February 21st at 8pm on CTV. For more information on the show, visit: https://www.bellmedia.ca/the-lede/tv/ctv/holmes-family-effect/.
