New York, NY (March 2, 2010) - Kendall Farrell, Executive Director of Bottomless Closet, was honored today at the Women United in Philanthropy luncheon. The event celebrated women who have made a significant impact on their communities through philanthropic giving, advocacy, and volunteerism.  All proceeds from the luncheon go to benefit the Women United Fund, which supports United Way of New York City’s youth empowerment initiatives.

Women United in Philanthropy is an all-volunteer group that taps into the power, talent and passion of women to transform our communities.  Members are accomplished women leaders who have taken an active role in advancing the work of United Way of New York City.  Farrell, along with the eleven other honorees, was praised at the luncheon for her remarkable
efforts through philanthropy and the mark she has made on
New York City.

The women honored here today are role models to the community, and we are proud to partner with them, said Gordon Campbell, President of United Way of New York City. Their leadership truly changes our city for the better, especially the lives of those who need the most help.

In 2007 Kendall Farrell joined Bottomless Closet as executive director.  With her more than 20 years experience in the nonprofit sector, she is leading the organization into its second decade.  Her experience spans direct client services, program development, fundraising and special events in addition to leadership and management. Throughout her career, Kendall has supported people who were dying in hospice, worked with homeless individuals and families, developed residential housing for people living with HIV, advocated for public policy legislation to support equality for transgendered individuals, and acted as a first responder to women and men immediately following sexual assaults.

As an independent, professional woman she appreciates the value of self-sufficiency and believes that you can never underestimate how putting on  nice pair of shoes can help transform the way you see yourself, build confidence and ultimately get you the job. Furthermore, Kendall appreciates the reach of Bottomless Closet’s mission beyond simply outfitting women, but providing programming that will improve women’s professional skills, personal confidence and self-determination.

Farrell graduated from Hobart and William Smith Colleges with a BA in sociology and an independent major in HIV/AIDS.
