Men’s Wearhouse launches national suit drive
Men’s Wearhouse has launched its eighth annual National Suit Drive to collect donations of gently used professional clothing for unemployed Americans.
Though July 31, donations of men’s and women’s suits, ties, jackets, shirts, pants ad shoes can be donated at more than 900 Men’s Wearhouse stores across the country.
The clothing will be distributed to more than 180 nonprofit organizations that provide job skills, training and seminars to disadvantaged men and women entering or re-entering the workforce.
“While the National Suit Drive collects gently used professional attire, what it's really collecting is confidence, inspiration and a chance,” said Joseph Abboud, award-winning designer and chief creative director of the Men's Wearhouse. “In a suit, the world looks at you a little differently, and everyone deserves to know what that feels like.”
The goal is to exceed 250,000 donated items. Over the past seven years, the initiative has collected about 850,000 professional clothing donations.
In the metro area, Men’s Wearhouse stores are at Penn Square Mall, 2530 W Memorial Road and in Moore.
