Men’s Wearhouse is hosting their fifth annual National Suit Drive during the month of July. This is the country’s largest collection of gently used professional suits in the nation. CBS 62 and CW50 are partnering with the program to spread the word and encourage our the Southeast Michigan area to donate their business suits to this wonderful cause.
Not Just Men’s Suits
At any Men’s Wearhouse location across the country you can donate men’s or women’s suits, shirts, jackets, ties, belts, and shoes. By doing this you are giving to a great cause. Men’s Wearhouse will donate to over 200 local charities in the Southeast Michigan area. To find out which charities are benefiting from this you can go to the official Men’s Wearhouse website at nationalsuitdrive.com. Once you are at the website you click on “about our recipients and partners”. For every suit donated, Men’s Wearhouse will give two brand-new ties to the cause.
This year’s suit drive aims to collect 110,000 items of gently used business attire during the campaign. Organizers stress that no donation is too small and anything you can offer is greatly appreciated. In tough economic times a program like this can turn a small gesture into hope for some0ne who is struggling. Men’s Wearhouse will thank donors with a coupon of 50% off the regular price of any item. (excluding shoes)
