2020 SUIT DRIVE CHALLENGE

HENRY A. DAVIDSEN COLLECTS PROFESSIONAL AND BUSINESS CASUAL WEAR TO SUPPORT CAREER WARDROBE

THE SUIT DRIVE CHALLENGE AIMS TO COLLECT 7,500 ITEMS BENEFITING PHILADEPLPHIANS IN NEED

Philadelphia, PA – February 27, 2020 – Henry A. Davidsen: Master Tailors & Image Consultants, Philadelphia’s premier purveyor of custom men’s clothing, is challenging Philadelphians and tri-staters to clean their closets and donate gently-used suit items and all-gender business casual attire from February 28 through April 15 in support of Career Wardrobe. 

For the fourth time, President and Founder of Henry A. Davidsen, Brian Lipstein, is excited to connect and support the community by organizing a Suit Drive Challenge collecting gently-used suits, ties, jackets, shirts, pants, polo shirts, slacks, khakis, belts, and shoes to provide a professional wardrobe to unemployed and low-income individuals – from laid-off workers to recovering substance abusers to veterans.

“In 2018, we collected more than 5,000 items to aid those re-entering the workforce,” said Lipstein. “We’re thrilled to team up with Career Wardrobe as well as our returning and new-this-year drop-off locations and partners to once again support this great cause benefiting Philadelphians in need.”

All professional and business casual attire collected during the six-week initiative will go directly to Career Wardrobe, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit organization providing a professional wardrobe to unemployed, low-income men and women. New this year, the Henry A. Davidsen team will also be collecting business casual items and female clothing.
