St. Louis, MO, July 02, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- WIN Warehouse, a public charity that connects nonprofit organizations with corporate excess inventory, is partnering with Men’s Wearhouse to launch its 11th annual National Suit Drive, a month-long initiative that collects gently-used professional clothing for those transitioning back into the workforce.
Throughout the month of July, donations collected at Men’s Wearhouse stores will be distributed to WIN Warehouse and over 170 local nonprofit organizations across the country that help disadvantaged individuals regain employment through job readiness programs and workforce assistance.
Over the past 10 years, the National Suit Drive has collected more than 1.3 million items of professional clothing. Last year, they collected 322,714 donated items.
“We are grateful to be a continued partner of the annual suit drive,” said Tony DiFranco, program director of WIN Warehouse. “We are able to support St. Louis’ nonprofit organizations that offer programs to help men and women to get back on their feet and find gainful employment.”
As of Sun., July 1, residents of the Greater St. Louis area can donate their gently-used professional clothing, including men’s and women’s suits, ties, jackets, shirts, pants, belts, and shoes at St. Louis area Men’s Wearhouse locations. 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.
WIN Warehouse will collect the donated clothing and distribute it to local service charities such as the Demetrious Johnson Charitable Foundation, Transition Center of St. Louis, Fathers’ Support Center of St. Louis, and Employment Connection.
“In a job interview, confidence can be the deciding factor that helps land you the job,” said Doug Ewert, CEO of Tailored Brands, Inc. “Putting on a suit gives you that confidence to make a great first impression, and the National Suit Drive provides the opportunity for others to look and feel their best as they take the next step in their career. In our eleventh year, we’re hopeful to collect more donations than ever before.”
