Suit drive benefiting VOA’s Working Wardrobe
Men’s Wearhouse is putting on its 11th annual National Suit Drive for July. The main beneficiary for Rochester donations is Volunteers of America Upstate New York’s Working Wardrobe program.
Community residents are encouraged to bring in their old suits to a Men’s Wearhouse location, where they will be donated to low-income and previously homeless men and women through VOA. The Working Wardrobe benefits more than 1,000 participants each year, all of whom experienced some sort of trauma such as addiction, mental health issues, domestic violence or homelessness. This program operates as part of a larger effort by VOA for these people to gain stability in their lives.
