National Suit Drive 2013 – Men’s Wearhouse


National Suit Drive 2013 – Morehouse Alumni, this is the perfect way to help your community in an easy way. Please consider donating to this worthy cause.

It’s time to clean out your closets! Throughout the month of July, Men’s Wearhouse will be holding its annual National Suit Drive (NSD), which occurs simultaneously in Canada and the USA and is North America’s largest collection of men’s gently used professional clothing. This will be the sixth year that the company is hosting this effort to encourage people to transform their unwanted business attire into a fresh start for millions of disadvantaged men who are trying to re-enter the workforce.

Held at more than 900 Men’s Wearhouse locations across the US, the National Suit Drive collects men’s and women’s suits, shirts, jackets, ties, belts, and shoes and distributes them to approximately 150 local charities who in turn, outfit and coach those who are re-entering the workforce so they can make a great first impression. For those who don’t have any clothing to contribute, there is an option to make monetary donations directly to their local participating non-profit organization either online at or at any Men’s Wearhouse location.

The goal for 2013 is to gather 150,000 items during the campaign so to accomplish this, we need your help. Please bring your gently used professional clothing donations to the Men’s Wearhouse or Moore’s store location in your neighborhood.

Should you have any questions about this program or if you would like more information, please visit our website at You can also check out our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter @MensWearhouse for real-time updates with #giveasuit.

As in previous years, Men’s Wearhouse will thank donors with a coupon for 50% off the regular price of retail items (excluding shoes and clearance) for their next purchase so please make a donation and encourage your colleagues to donate as well! If you want to help raise awareness personally, reach out to your social networks – for every NSD mention on Facebook or Twitter, Men’s Wearhouse will contribute $1 (up to $20,000) to the cause.

Thank you for being such fantastic partners and we truly appreciate your support of the National Suit Drive. Your help will make this year’s NSD our most successful yet!
