Dress for Success Providing Inmates with Suits


Most of us get up every day, dreading putting on that suit and tie and heading to work. A majority of prisoners don't know the feeling of a starched suit, or how to insert cufflinks, or even how to tie a tie. For them, a suit can be a very visual reminder that leaving prison is their chance to start over.




We are helping change their images with our Dress for Success program. The donation drive aims to ensure that every inmate (male or female) leaves prison with a suit. Don't believe me on what a difference it can make? Just take a look at the photos below. Please contact us if you have an old suit you are willing to donate to change a life.
