BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - No longer using that suit and tie? Louisiana's corrections department says you can donate it to men and women leaving prison who need something to wear for job interviews.
The department is seeking donations of dress clothing as part of the fifth annual National Suit Drive, a partnership with Refined by Fire Ministries and Men's Wearhouse.
Eighteen Men's Wearhouse locations around the state are accepting donations of used and cleaned clothing items, including suits, dress shirts, sports coats, shoes, jackets, ties and belts for both men and women.
Donations will be accepted until July 31. Donors will receive a 50 percent coupon for future purchases at the store and a tax receipt for the donations.
