Working Wardrobes is often given the opportunity to participate in wonderful corporate partnerships. In our nearly 20 year partnership with the Men’s Wearhouse, we are again the exclusive Southern California non-profit for Men’s Wearhouse National Suit Drive! In July, Men’s Wearhouse collected professional clothing donations for various non-profit organizations across the country. We are so thankful for the generous donations from the campaign!
Our mission is to do everything in our power to help the clients we serve get back to work. After the interview training and resume building that our clients receive, we insure that every client leaves with professional clothing, and the confidence needed to get the job. The clothing donations we receive through partnerships, like last month’s with Men’s Wearhouse, provide us with the materials we need to complete our clients’ journeys to new careers.
Another major part of this campaign was having one of our own front and center through it all! A former client, Chris Bellegia, was selected as the spokesperson for the Men’s Wearhouse suit drive. Chris has experience first-hand the power of a suit, and we are so proud of everything he has accomplished. As the spokesperson for this campaign, Chris truly embodies everything we strive so hard to achieve for our clients and we are proud that was chosen as the face of this initiative.
“As an unemployed vet who experienced fear and anxiety interacting with others, meeting with a personal shopper is hard to describe,” Chris explained. “It brings tears to my eyes as I write this but I felt “normal.” Difficult memories were momentarily forgotten. As if I were given back honor, dignity, and respect – for no reason at all.”
