It’s part of the National Suit Drive, which helps Utah’s disadvantaged workers regain confidence.
“We look forward to partnering with Men’s Wearhouse for the third year in a row to continue helping Utahns gain self-sufficiency,” said Dennis Kelsch, basic needs services director for CCS. “Many Utahns are still struggling, despite the slowly recovering economy, and National Suit Drive is the local community’s chance to help.”
Items being collected include men’s and women’s suits, shirts, jackets, ties, belts and shoes. People may donate their gently used items at any Men’s Wearhouse location along the Wasatch Front.
For every suit donated, Men’s Wearhouse will give two business ties to the cause. As a thank you, donors will receive a coupon for 50 percent off all regular-priced items (excluding shoes) for their next Men’s Wearhouse purchase, as well as a tax receipt.
Nationally, Men’s Wearhouse hopes to collect more than 110,000 articles of professional clothing to benefit charities like Catholic Community Services.
