24 Mar: Best Buy and the Women’s Employee Network Donates to Dress for Success

As part of the Women’s History Month celebrations hosted by Best Buy’s Women’s Employee Network*, Dress for Success stopped by on Monday to share their mission and brought a special guest to share her own personal story.

Odessa, a woman who has used the services at Dress for Success, shared a powerful story about how the nonprofit not only helped her get the professional attire needed to impress potential employers, but also gave her the confidence to get the job.

After participating in Dress for Success’s Suiting program, which gives women the clothes and the tools needed for their job interview, she took advantage of the nonprofit’s Employee Retention program.

20 Oct: Best Buy Doubles Down, Opens 4 Teen Tech Centers Nationwide

A 12-year-old aspiring inventor created a desk fan for his mom with parts from a broken PC and a cardboard box. Adding a single-throw switch, and wires for the circuit, the fan came alive. Beaming with pride, the boy started his own fan project with a completed prototype and has plans to design a custom enclosure using a 3D printer and a program called Tinkercad.

Believe it or not, he brainstormed and executed his fan project within the walls of the Best Buy Teen Tech Center in Minneapolis.
