National suit drive giving Tucsonans the confidence to get a job

TUCSON - A first impression can often make or break a job interview. Being well-groomed and dressed can often boost your confidence when answering those tough questions.

However, some don't have the money to look sharp when they apply, so Old Pueblo Community Services have teamed up with Men's Wearhouse to participate in their national suit drive.

Used suits can be donated to Men's Wearhouse, and in return the store will give donors a 50% off voucher.

The men who put these suits on say it's a life-changing experience.

"People kind of treated me different too. Just the idea of having a suit on, and it made me feel better about myself," said Howard Cyprian.

Howard's suit helped him land a job shortly after getting out of prison. He says the suit reminds him that he never wants to be behind bars ever again.

Old Pueblo Community Services accepts donations year long. However, the suit drive only goes until the end of the month. There are three Men's Wearhouse locations in Tucson to drop off your used suit.

-4500 N. Oracle, #417 (Tucson Mall)

-5628 E. Broadway Blvd. - west of Park Mall on south side of road

-90 W. River Road - Stone and Oracle between Zona 78 and Starbucks
