BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — "Sheroes" joined together Saturday morning to show support for the nonprofit group Dress for Success by taking part in a power walk at the Valley Plaza Mall.

Dress for Success promotes economic independence for women by providing professional attire, as well as a network of support and career development tools to help those in need thrive in work and in life.

The inaugural POWER walk served as an acronym for powerful, optimistic, worthy, extraordinary and resilient.

A news release from the group noted that its clients recognize making healthy choices in work and life is instrumental to fully achieving and maintaining economic independence.

The local chapter has received a $25,000 grant to build out a career center. That's expected to happen sometime next month.
