Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department's Savannah Impact Program (SIP) hosted a community bash today to celebrate the launch of Jonathan's Closet; a clothing collection organized to help young people in need of career-appropriate attire.
The drive was named in honor of the late Jonathan Brown, a very active Workforce Investment Act Program participant, who passed away last year.
WIA is an employment training program for eligible Chatham County youth, ages 16-21. Its focus is academic achievement and workforce development through effective and comprehensive activities.
"It is dress for success. We are asking for gently used items, if not new, slacks, blouses, shirts, skirts; the things you would wear to a job interview," said Loreal Lee, WIA Youth Specialist.
Boxes will also be placed at the SIP office and the five SCMPD precincts from July 28 until Aug. 8.
