During the entire month of August, Men’s Wearhouse will be holding its annual National Suit Drive, the country’s largest collection of gently used professional clothing. This will be the fourth year that our company is hosting this effort to encourage people to transform their unwanted business-wear into a second chance for the millions of disadvantaged Americans who are still unemployed.
Held at more than 900 Men’s Wearhouse locations across the country, National Suit Drive collects men’s and women’s suits, shirts, jackets, ties, belts, and shoes and distributes them to local charities who in turn, outfit those who are re-entering the workforce so they can make a great first impression. To help the effort, Men’s Wearhouse will match each suit donated with the donation of a brand-new tie and for every “like” on Facebook, our company will give $1 to the cause, up to $10,000.
The goal for 2011 is ambitious - we hope to exceed 100,000 articles of clothing in thirty days
