Mario poses in the first suit he’s ever owned.

RESOURCE kicked off August by partnering with Men’s Wearhouse on their #GiveASuit program, which provides slightly-used suits for our program participants. Thanks to a combination of high-quality donated suits and some amazing volunteers, 110 program participants were outfitted in sharp-looking new suits for face-to-face job interviews, and more.

“This is my first suit… ever!” shared one participant.

“I have a job interview on Friday, thank you!” shared a participant job-seeker.

RESOURCE’s #GiveASuit giveaway event was led by volunteer program manager Courtney Flug.

“My goal for the day was to see the men in our programs leave with a smile on their faces. I’d say that goal was met,” Courtney says. She believes that it was time well spent.

We’re thankful to a great group of volunteers, including an employee group from UPS, who helped make the event a success. Because of their support, we’ll be looking forward to hearing success stories from our program participants, who left with increased confidence due to the gift of new suits!
