Fremont-based Men’s Wearhouse is hosting its seventh annual National Suit Drive through July, asking customers to donate their gently-used professional attire to help men and women who are trying to enter or re-enter the workforce. 

The 2014 National Suit Drive aims to collect 150,000 pieces of used professional attire (men’s and women’s suits, shirts, jackets, ties, pants, belts and shoes) that will be refurbished and distributed to over 180 partner nonprofits that prepare men and women to enter the workplace through job readiness programs and workforce assistance. 

Accepted Items Include Gently Used:

  • Suits & Sport Coats
  • Dress Shirts & Collared Shirts
  • Sweaters
  • Casual Pants
  • Vests
  • Ties & Other Accessories
  • Dress Shoes
  • Jackets, Long Coats, & Raincoats
  • Womens Professional
  • Clothing & Accessories

In return, Men’s Wearhouse will provide a coupon for 50 percent off a future purchase to each participating donor.  

And for those who have no clothes to give, 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.
