For the month of July we are partnering with Men's Wearhouse for their annual suit drive to benefit participants of our Working Wardrobe program. Donate your gently used professional attire to a Men's Wearhouse in Rochester or Victor and help someone restart their career and move towards self-sufficiency. As always we are looking for the following items.

  • Men and Women's Business Attire (larger sizes are especially needed)
  • Business Casual Attire
  • Dress Shoes
  • Jewelry
  • Accessories (purses, belts, ties, etc.)
  • Make-up (for all shades and skin-types)
  • Personal hygiene items

Find a store to donate here.

Working Wardrobe needs Accessories

Working Wardrobe is currently in need of accessories to go with the suits and professional outfits provided. Accessories include: Bags/Purses, Cosmetics, Men/Women's shoes, Stockings/Socks, Ties, etc.

"It's more than just clothes, I see people light up with confidence... Someone believes in them and they begin to believe in themselves."

Gail Berkes, Program Manager

The Working Wardrobe Program provides low-income and previously homeless men and women with interview clothes and coaching to give them confidence as they rejoin the workplace.

It's easy to donate! Either drop off donations at VOA’s Main Office at:

214 Lake Avenue in Rochester

Or call: 585-647-1150 and ask for the Working Wardrobe Program Manager so she can arrange to pick up your items.
