Men's Wearhouse holds national suit drive

ALBANY, GA (WTOC/WALB)  -Times are tough for everyone these days, but 82 percent of Americans who have lost jobs during the recession are men.

And now one retailer is making sure men are looking good when they go out for a job interview.

Men's Wearhouse is hosting a national suit drive this month. They are asking for donotions of any gently used professional attire, such as suits and shoes. The donations will go toward helping others who made need a little boost.

"To see that happen would be wonderful because that means that's many more men that we can help in transition get back to work," said Robin Roberts, Men's Wearhouse.

Women's professional attire is also being accepted. And for every suit donated, Men's Wearhouse will donate a dress shirt to the cause.

Suits can be dropped off at the Men's Wearhouse on Abercorn Street.
