WIN Warehouse, a public charity the connects nonprofit organizations with corporate excess inventory, is partnering with Men’s Wearhouse on its 10th annual National Suit Drive, a July initiative that collects gently-used professional clothing for Americans transitioning back into the workforce.
Throughout the month, donations collected at Men’s Wearhouse stores will be distributed to WIN Warehouse and more than 170 local non-profit organizations across the country that help disadvantaged individuals regain employment through job readiness programs and workforce assistance.
Store locations in the Southwestern Illinois area include Edwardsville and Fairview Heights.
Over the past nine years, the National Suit Drive has collected more than 1.3 million items of professional clothing.
“We are grateful to be a continued partner of the annual suit drive, said Tony DiFranco, program director of WIN Warehouse. We are able to support St. Louis nonprofit organizations that offer programs which help both men and women to get back on their feet and find gainful employment. “
Residents can donate their gently-used professional clothing, including men’s and women’s suits, ties, jackets, shirts, pants, belts and shoes at St. Louis area Men’s Wearhouse locations. As a thank you, donors will receive 50 percent off their next purchase of regular priced retail items (excluding shoes, clearance and Exceptional Value items).
WIN Warehouse will collect the donated clothing and distribute it to local service charities such as St. Patrick Center, Fathers Support Center of St. Louis, and Employment Connection. WIN receives hundreds of donated suits each year.
