Give a suit. Change a life.

Atlanta Center for Self Sufficiency is one of the recipients of the Men’s Wearhouse National Suit Drive, which officially kicks off today.

Donate your gently used professional attire at any Men’s Wearhouse store between June 27 and July 31. You’ll be helping someone in need dress for a job interview or new employment. And, as a thank you, Men’s Wearhouse will give you 50 percent off most items in the store. Visit nationalsuitdrive.com for more details.

We’d like to thank Men’s Wearhouse for its ongoing support of ACSS. That support is one reason ACSS’ clients are not only among the best trained job applicants, but also the best dressed!

Give the suit off your back!

Young men in boxers promote the National Suit Drive.

This morning, thousands of rush hour commuters were exposed to an unusual sight.

Men wearing only socks, dress shoes, ties and boxer shorts stood vigil at some of Atlanta’s busiest intersections — holding signs that read, “Give the suit off your back.”

The reason for this eye catching stunt was to promote the Men’s Wearhouse National Suit Drive. Throughout August, Men’s Wearhouse stores throughout the U.S. will accept donations of gently used professional attire to help men seeking employment make a good first impression at job interviews.

Atlanta Center for Self Sufficiency is one of the beneficiaries of the program. It’s one reason ACSS graduates are not only among Atlanta’s most qualified job applicants, but also the best dressed!

The National Suit Drive runs through August 31, 2011. For every suit collected, Men’s Wearhouse will donate a tie to the cause.

The company is also donating $1 for every new “like” it receives this month (up to 10 thousand) on its Facebook site. Click here for more details on the National Suit Drive.
