Announce Dress Our Vets Clothing Drive
in Celebration of Women’s History Month
Professional Clothing Donations for Women Veterans To Be Gathered Throughout March
Trenton, NJ — Kicking off Women’s History Month, Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno was joined by women legislators to announce the month-long Dress Our Vets initiative, which will collect new or like-new professional clothing for women veterans transitioning to the civilian workforce.
“Every March, we commemorate the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. This year, however, I thought it appropriate to focus on a unique category of leaders – our women veterans,” said Lt. Governor Guadagno. “Let’s all work together to help these women transition from heavy flak jackets to elegant black jackets, from battle dress to professional dress.”
All donated clothing will be given to Suiting Warriors Foundation (SWF), a grass-roots, non-profit mobile concierge suiting service that has suited approximately 600 veterans over the past year. A Veterans Service Organization, SWF supports veterans transitioning into civilian life by providing them with professional attire essential for competing in today’s job market. SWF serves veterans in Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, New York City and Washington, D.C. Read more
