Suit Drive to Benefit Men With Developmental Disabilities

You might be thinking - why is this news? Just a great example of the importance of corporate partnerships. Bravo to Men's Wearhouse for recognizing how this contribution can make a major difference in the lives of men with developmental disabilities seeking employment.

STAMFORD, Conn. -- Concerned that thousands of men are unable to secure employment because they lack the initial, yet vital, step of looking presentable for a job interview, ARI of Connecticut, Inc. and Men’s Wearhouse are working together to collect thousands of articles of professional attire as part of the 2nd Annual National Suit Drive, September 1-30. The suits will provide these individuals with the necessary work attire that will build their self-esteem and help make a lasting impression during job interviews.
All 1,065 Men’s Wearhouse and Men’s Wearhouse & Tux locations will serve as drop-off sites for gently used suits, dress shirts, sport coats, slacks, ties, belts and shoes that will be used to benefit men in need of these items to transition into the workforce.
