Fire Destroys Working Wardrobes Headquarters in Irvine
On Sunday, Feb. 2, 2020 at 5:50 a.m., a fire broke out at the Working Wardrobes headquarters located at 1851 Kettering Street, Irvine, California. It was several hours before firefighters could access the building. Unfortunately, everything has been destroyed by this fire and we absolutely devastated. At this time the cause of the fire is under investigation and we are working closely with the Orange County Fire Authority and Irvine Police Department for more details.
We are determined to rebuild Working Wardrobes quickly. We are working with our donors, volunteers, employees and the Orange County community so we can continue our mission of helping men, women, young adults and veterans overcome difficult challenges and achieve the dignity of work.
We are so grateful for the outpouring of support from the community, especially Goodwill and Nicole Suydam for providing valuable space for our organization in the Goodwill Fitness Center in Santa Ana. We appreciate every single donor and supporter who has contacted us, lent a helping hand and is working hard to fundraise on our behalf.
We are so thankful for your support, help, and love.
Let’s #RebuildWW together!
