Suit of Change

How do you dress for a job interview? For many people, it’s a no-brainer. For some, it’s a major issue. Many disadvantaged men don’t have the clothing to look good for a job interview that could change their life. A job can deliver a huge confidence boost and it can help society to better combat issues of depression, suicide and domestic violence. Good clothes will not immediately change the lives of these men but it’s one of the many important steps that propel the unemployed or refugees down the path to a new life. Suit of Change’s role is to: •Collect and Distribute Preloved Menswear to the non-profits that need it the most •Provide style training and personal presentation material to non-profit staff and volunteers •Alter garments to ensure they fit well •Organise Free haircuts and grooming •Organise photographers to provide headshots for resume’s And then spend time getting to know these men. May 19th, 2016 is Suit of Change Day and it has been created for two important reasons: •To highlight the important social benefits of providing clothing assistance to men in need. •To increase donations of pre-loved men’s clothing of which there is a shortage. We know how many men love to wear their clothes until the last.
