I’m all for helping out and supporting a good cause, and with our uncertain economy and employment hardships across the board it is always nice to see certain companies rise to the occasion with a helping hand. This July, Men’s Wearhouse is launching its seventh annual National Suit Drive and encouraging consumers to donate their gently-used professional attire to help individuals who are trying to enter or re-enter the workforce.
The 2014 National Suit Drive aims to collect 150,000 pieces of professional attire (men’s and women’s suits, shirts, jackets, ties, pants, belts and shoes) to distribute to over 180 partner nonprofits that prepare men and women to enter the workplace through job readiness programs and workforce assistance. In return, Men’s Wearhouse will provide a coupon for 50% off a future purchase to each participating donor. Pretty nice deal if you ask me!
While those reading this may have their own suit or their significant others’ suits they can donate, you can also help the cause without donating from your own closets. Men’s Wearhouse will make a monetary donation of $1 (up to $20,000) to their National Suit Drive cause for every new Twitter and Instagram follower and each time the hashtag #giveasuit is used.
