BENEFITING: SUITING WARRIORS FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jul 31, 2016
Critical Funding Is Needed For Suiting Warriors Summer Suiting Programs
WHO: Suiting Warriors is dedicated to empowering Veterans for a more enriching and successful transition into the civilian workforce.
HOW: We help Veterans to look sharp. We do this in a myriad of ways that begins with educating Veterans on the importance of a professional appearance. We parlay this with consultation, from our suiting professionals, and styling tips on current fashion trends as well as classic techniques and best practices. We top it all off by providing them with FREE professional business attire for BOTH male and female Veterans AND their spouses!
WHAT: Your investment will help support our Mobile Suiting Unit (MSU) and, consequently, our Mobile Concierge Suiting Service (MCSS). With the Suiting Warriors MSU and MCSS, we provide a truly vital and one of a kind mobile Veteran transition resource.
WHY: In today’s difficult economy we know many veterans lack the means of transportation necessary to travel to us. Additionally, the day a soldier is discharged from service, their last paycheck is only a few weeks away. Most of that must be used for every day living expenses. So for many, the funds to secure quality business attire is simply NOT available. Suiting Warriors MSU program is a bridge between the Veteran and their spouses and the ability for participation in an interview or job fair. This one simple gift of a business suit or professional attire can make all the difference in a person's confidence to take action towards their employment and excel in a job interview. Everyone needs at least one suit and SW proudly provides this opportunity to those who unselfishly served or are currently serving in U.S. Armed Forces. Your investment provides the funding needed to get us in front of our Veterans at military bases, job/career fairs and educational events throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
