Gentleman (or lovely girlfriends/wives), now is the time to check your closet for any gently used suits to donate to the Moores Suit Drive! A suit that you either don’t wear, or doesn’t fit will make a huge difference in someone else’s life. Think of finally getting a job interview after you’ve been unemployed for a long time, or going into your first job interview with more student debt than you can count. Now imagine the crippling angst you would have if you couldn’t afford to get a suit for that interview. Just thinking about that puts my stomach in knots.
Moores knows this reality and for several years now has helped hundreds of thousands of men in Canada avoid this through their annual Suit Drive. The Suit Drive takes gently used suits from the public at any of their 120 stores across Canada and then provides them to 60 different organizations that offer job-ready skills and training programs to redistribute to those people who need them most. The campaign has collected over 230,000 pieces since it began five years ago, and has made the difference in so many people’s lives. As a thank you for your donation, Moores will provide you with 50% off of your next suit purchase at Moores!
