Suit a Service Member Clothing Drive Begins

Suit a Service Member Clothing Drive Begins

Suit a Service Member is a seven-week drive to collect new and gently used professional attire for veterans and departing service members looking for civilian jobs. The drive is a project of the Young Lawyers Division Military Committee.

When: Nov. 30 through Jan. 15

Why: Many service members face financial difficulties when leaving the military, and this is one way in which we can help to make things easier for them and help them get a job.

What: The following are examples of the new and gently used clothing we are looking for:
• Suits
• Jackets
• Dress shirts
• Dress pants
• Ties
• Belts
• Skirts
• Dresses
• Blouses
• Shoes

Where: We have 12 drop-off locations across the state. (See below)
