This month, thousands of service men and women will return home and to the workforce. If you have any work-appropriate attire you are no longer using, now is a great chance to give the vets a warm welcome!
In appreciation for their service, GoodwillNyNj will provide a professional outfit to all Veterans, past or present, who go to any of its 39 area stores, show their military ID, and mention “Goodwill Suits Vets” from Friday through Sunday, January 6-8, 2012.
To help outfit these returning servicemen and women, we’re calling on you, Goodwill supporters, for help. Please donate professional clothing for men and women, including suits; suit jackets; dress pants and skirts, shirts and blouses, and shoes; ties; scarves; and accessories. Drop your donations at any of our Goodwill stores. If your company participates, we’ll arrange a special pick up – just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up the details.
By giving to Goodwill, you will be helping your local vets, supporting our efforts to provide a broad selection of useful clothing to returning servicemen and women. (And you can take a tax deduction, as long as you donate before December 31st – just be sure to request a tax receipt at the time of your donation drop-off.)
Join Goodwill NY-NJ in telling all Vets: “Job well done, and thanks to you and your family for your and their sacrifice!”
