Looking for Organization to Donate Suits and Dress Shirts

Have collected about 30 years worth of suits (10-15) and dress shirts (20-25) that I would like to repurpose to an organization that helps guys dress for interviews or get back in the work force. Are there any nationally known groups that met this specific need? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

There was a member here doing something like that a few years back.

Thanks for the reply. Men's Wearhouse had a program but it was discontinued due to the pandemic I was told.

Might not be exactly what you're looking for, but the West Virginia University Statler School of Engineering has a program where they accumulate donated interview clothes for male and female and students can borrow items for free to use for interviews and formal events.

Thanks for the input. I'll look for something like this in my area.

Charles Tyrwhitt will accept the donation of any dress shirt, and will give you a $10 rebate on any non-promotionally priced item. As of now, this is only for shirts, not suits.

There’s an organization called Suits For Success that donates dress clothing for those getting into the workforce. I’m not sure if this is a national organization

I have donated old suits and dress shirts to the Salvation Army and Goodwill. People commonly shop at thrift stores for secondhand dress clothes, so there’s a good chance your suits will be appreciated in their new home. The sale proceeds give the employees a working wage.
