Philadelphia, PA - Henry A. Davidsen: Master Tailors & Image Consultants, Philadelphia’s leader in custom tailored clothing, is challenging Philadelphians to donate 5,000 suit items by May 7th in support of its third annual Suit Drive to benefit Career Wardrobe. Several Philadelphia-area businesses, including Zarwin Buam Devito Kaplan Schaer Toddy P.C. and American Executive Centers, are coming together to support the Suit Drive as collection centers.
Just in time for spring cleaning – President and Founder of Henry A. Davidsen, Brian Lipstein is raising the bar from last year’s goal of 1,000 suit items and challenging Philadelphians to donate gently-used suits, ties, jackets, shirts, pants, belts, and shoes in support of local unemployed men.
All professional attire collected during the month-long initiative will go directly to Career Wardrobe, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit providing a professional wardrobe to unemployed, low-income men – from laid-off workers to recovering substance abusers to veterans.
“We are excited to more than double last year’s goal!” said Lipstein. “Career Wardrobe outfits these men from head to toe so they can walk in to a job interview not only looking the part but feeling confident, which is in line with what we do here at Henry A. Davidsen.”
