For the guys in my reading audience, your local Moores; Clothing For Men store is having their second annual Suit Drive.
Moores is currently accepting donations of gently used professional clothing. Moores takes the clothing you provide and donates to people who are down on their luck. Your donation will bridge opportunities for at-risk men from all backgrounds. Ultimately, you’ll be helping them make a difference in your community.
All you have to do is go into your closet, pull out those pieces of clothing you never wear anymore and take them to your nearest Moores store. I have a perfectly good suit that no longer fits me anymore. It seems to have shrunk through the years…I can’t figure any other reason for it not fitting me. Instead of leaving this suit hanging in the back of my closet, I will be taking it my Suit Guy at Moores to help Moores help someone else.
Moores will be accepting donations until August 31st, 2011. Clothing donations collected in their stores are directed to local organizations.
What items of clothing can you donate?
Any gently used professional attire will be accepted. These clothing items include:
- Sport coats
- Dress slacks pants
- Dress shirts
- Dress shoes
- Sportswear (linen shirts, sweaters, casual pants, vests)
- Outerwear (jackets, long coats, raincoats)
- Ties and other accessories
As an added bonus for your generous donations, Moores will give you 50% off the price of your next purchase (excluding shoes). Check with Moores for details because I am sure that there is more fine-print to this fabulous deal than I have made clear.
The bottom-line, Moores is helping you clean out your closet, you are helping someone less fortunate than you and you are getting a discount on your next clothing purchase from Moores. Win, win, win.
