Put Your Clothes to Work

May - June Annually

Put Your Clothes to Work is an important corporate clothing drive that helps community-based job trainees overcome one of the greatest obstacles to getting and keeping a job -- owning appropriate interview/work attire. The drive is planned and organized by a committee composed of key sponsors.

The clothing drive, now in its 19th year, partners with more than 40 companies to collect gently-used professional and business casual attire. Since the drive started, more than 266,000 pounds of clothes and accessories for more than 6,500 men and women job seekers has been collected. Our partner companies choose a specific week or two weeks to hold their drives and Goodwill provides marketing materials about the drive, along with bins and racks to collect the clothing. Goodwill schedules a specific date and time to pick up the donations.

Kick-off Reception

A reception hosted by RSM in late April kicks off the drive. It is an opportunity to join representatives of companies that conduct drives, donors to the drive and other people, primarily business people, for a fun evening celebrating Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries. Highlights of the reception include remarks by a Goodwill job training participant who has benefited from the drive. Attendees may bring donations of women’s and men’s professional and business casual attire such as suits, shirts, blouses, neckties, trousers, shoes and stockings, as well as accessories such as jewelry and handbags. Complimentary parking is available. 

Program Support

All clothing donated benefits the Goodwill Clothing Collaborative for Job Trainees. Learn more about the Clothing Collaborative.
