Men's Wearhouse solicits donation of gently-used attires

Jul '14
In the final week of the 2014 National Suit Drive, Men's Wearhouse is asking consumers to dig through their closets and donate gently-used business attire, including men's (and women's) suits, pants, shirts, ties, shoes and belts, at their local Men's Wearhouse store.  Now in its seventh year, the National Suit Drive assists unemployed workers who are trying to get back into the workforce by helping them dress appropriately, not only for that crucial first impression in a job interview, but also during the workweek once they secure a new position. 
 
Men's Wearhouse is encouraging consumers to donate to help reach the goal of collecting 150,000 clothing items by July 31. They have partnered with over 180 local nonprofit organizations across the United States who will ultimately receive the donations as part of their efforts to prepare those looking to re-enter the workforce through job-readiness and workplace training programs.
 
"Sitting among the interviewers wearing that new suit transformed me," said past National Suit Drive recipient Ucal K. "Suddenly I had the confidence to clearly say what I wanted to say, without feeling intimidated. That suit made me feel like I belonged in the interview and at that job. That's the power a suit can have."
 
Last year, the National Suit Drive collected over 140,000 pieces of gently-used professional clothing and has collected over 650,000 donations over the past six years, giving thousands of job-seekers the ability to look and feel their best. Men's Wearhouse is thanking participants by giving clothing donors a coupon for 50 percent off their next purchase (excluding shoes, clearance and Everyday Low Price items).
