This July, Men's Wearhouse is sponsoring its the sixth annual National Suit Drive, and is joining local organizations help give a fresh start to disadvantaged workers in Utah still facing unemployment.

The National Suit Drive will partner with Catholic Community Services of Utah, an organization that empowers people in need along the Wasatch Front to reach self-sufficiency.

To donate clothing, patrons may go to any one of more than 900 Men's Wearhouse stores around the country to contribute their gently used men's suits, shirts, jackets, ties, belts and shoes. Women's professional clothing items are accepted as well. Dress shoes and big and tall business attire are in especially high demand.

Donors may also make a monetary contribution by giving directly to a participating nonprofit organization.

As a thank-you, clothing donors will receive a coupon for 50 percent off the regular price of retail items (excluding shoes, clearance, and everyday low price items) for their next Men's Wearhouse purchase.

Monetary donations are accepted online at nationalsuitdrive.com or at any Men's Wearhouse location. All donors will receive a tax receipt.
