Boots to Suits is a local nonprofit that was founded in 2014 by Sue Farrell. This nonprofit works to provide business attire for our veterans as they transition from military to civilian life. The clothing is very helpful to veterans as they go out on employment interviews. Boots to Suits’ goal is to provide the best quality clothes available for our veterans.

With any organization, during the last two years, Boots to Suits has learned to stay away from used dress shirts (ring around the collar) and used khaki pants. White or light blue dress shirts and flat front khaki pants are preferred. If you would like to donate either of these items in any size, the best pricing is found at BJs and Costco.

For men’s suits, year round weight material is preferred over heavy wool sport jackets. Additionally, blue blazers are accepted for their versatility. All sizes are accepted, but they sometimes have challenges finding the larger sizes 48-54.

In meeting the needs of the ladies, Boots to Suits does not need casual items. They need apparel that is suitable for an interview, be it a dress or separate suiting. Gently worn or new shoes are accepted in all sizes for women and men along with ties and scarves to finish off an outfit.

The Outreach Class will be accepting these items on the morning of Sunday, November 11. The Mastin Room will be the collection point. If you have additional questions, please e-mail, Ken Hart: ken.alan.hart@gmail.com Thanks for your time and cooperation.
