PPE Use and Distribution Policy

Dress for Success Vancouver (DFSV) is committed to keeping our workspace and programming space safe and to do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Wearing (Personal Protective Equipment) PPE is required by all staff, volunteers, and clients who enter the boutique space.



You are welcome to bring your own disposable or reusable mask to wear in the office. We have our own PPE Inventory of both reusable and cloth masks and would be happy to provide them to our staff and volunteers. Please be sure that the mask is covering your mouth and nose at all times. If you have one of our cloth masks, please do your best to bring it to all of your shifts.


Everyone will wash their hands in the bathroom down the hall before entering the boutique. Gloves will be provided to sorting and dressing services volunteers when they enter the boutique.

Hand sanitizer:

Hands sanitizer dispensers will be placed throughout the office space. Please use them as needed throughout the day.

In the boutique we currently have the following PPE on hand:

  • Disposable surgical masks for distribution to any staff member, volunteer, or client who needs one
  • Cloth masks for distribution to any staff member, volunteer, or client who needs one.
  • Nitrile gloves that will be used by sorting volunteers
  • Hand sanitizer refills for the smaller dispensers around the office
  • Lysol/Clorox wipes for high touch surfaces

Gloves, cloth and disposable masks will all be kept together and distributed by the staff lead on hand.

There will be regular cleaning of high touch surfaces such as doorknobs, keyboards, phones, and light switches by the volunteers after a client has completed their appointment.

Proper PPE Disposal:

Please throw your PPE into the garbage when you are finished using it.
