Last day to donate to national suit drive

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Men: if you have any gently used suits in your closet, today is the last day to donate them to help out workers in need who face unemployment.

Old Pueblo Community Services, which provides transitional housing to Tucson's homeless, has partnered up with Men's Wearhouse for the 6th Annual National Suit Drive.

Nationally, Men' Wearhouse hopes to collect over 150,000 professional clothing items to benefit numerous charities across the country.

Donations are being accepted at Tucson Men's Wearhouse locations. Here they are 90 W. River Rd., 5628 E. Broadway and 4500 N. Oracle Rd.

Another way to give to the cause is through social media. Join the conversation on Twitter and Facebook @menswearhouse #givesuit. For every national suit drive mention Men's Wearhouse will contribute $1, up to $20,000 to the cause. Donors will get a 50% off coupon to use at Men's Wearhouse and a tax receipt.
