CareerSource Capital Region and Men’s Wearhouse Seeking Donations of Gently Used Professional Attire to Help Americans Get Back to Work

 

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – CareerSource Capital Region is partnering once again with Men’s Wearhouse locations in Tallahassee during the Men’s Wearhouse Ninth Annual National Suit Drive.  This special event is aimed at collecting gently used men’s and women’s professional attire to give unemployed individuals a chance to look their best as they transition back into the workforce.

 

Through July 31st, clothing collected at Men’s Wearhouse stores in Tallahassee will be distributed to CareerSource Capital Region.  Similarly, more than 180 non-profit organizations across the country will be recipients of donated items that will help disadvantaged individuals regain employment through job readiness programs and workforce assistance. Over the past eight years, the Men’s Wearhouse National Suit Drive has collected and distributed more than one million donated items to non-profit organizations across the nation.

 

“Our goal is to arm unemployed men and women with the tools and resources they need to get back into the workforce, and partners like Men’s Wearhouse help us achieve this,” said Jim McShane, CEO of CareerSource Capital Region. “The National Suit Drive equips career seekers with the confidence they need to get back on their feet and achieve success.”

 

Right now, community members are encouraged to donate their gently-used professional clothing, including men’s and women’s suits, ties, jackets, shirts, pants, belts and shoes at the Men’s Wearhouse at 1594 Governors Square Blvd. As a thank you, donors will receive 50 percent off their next purchase of regular priced retail items (excluding shoes, clearance and Exceptional Value items).
