Men's Wearhouse is hosting its fifth annual National Suit Drive during the month of July in an effort to collect 110,000 professional clothing items for Americans re-entering the workforce.
The drive is said to be the largest collection of gently used business attire for men who are still facing joblessness.
"In a job market like this where it's really hard to find a job, having that confidence boost of having a quality suit or just something you can feel special in can really help with the interview process," said Zach Mulder who works at the Green Hills Men's Wearhouse.
Those wanting to donate to the cause can do so any area Men's Wearhouse location.
Items needed include men's suits, shirts, jackets, ties, belts and shoes. Women's professional clothing is also being accepted.
All donated items will be distributed to local non-profit organizations that help prepare men and women to re-enter the job market.
"It's just a way for the company to give back to the community," said Mulder.
This year, dress shoes and big and tall business attire is in high demand.
For each suit donated, Men's Wearhouse will give two ties to the cause.
Donors who help the cause will receive a coupon for 50% off a regular priced item.
