More than 900 Men's Wearhouse locations across the country are holding a national suit drive starting June 27–July 31.
This is the fifth year the company has hosted the drive to encourage people to transform their unwanted business attire into a fresh start for millions who otherwise couldn't afford it and are trying to re-enter the workforce. The drive collects both men's and women's suits, shirts, jackets, belts and shoes and will distribute them to local charities.
"Everyone who makes a donation through us can also get a coupon good for any one of our store locations for 50 percent discount on items in the store," said Men's Wearhouse Consultant Bob Dellert.
Fox Carolina's Greg Funderburg donated three of his personal suits that he used to wear before his weight loss.
For every suit donated, Men's Wearhouse will donate two brand-new ties to charity.
