Recycling Clothing: Suit Yourself Donation Day Saturday, August 6

This weekend, you can recycle clothing through Suit Yourself, and help a woman find a job.

Suit Yourself logo

On Saturday, August 6, the all-volunteer non-profit agency Suit Yourself is collecting gently worn professional clothing, shoes, and accessories to be furnished to women in transition who are seeking employment.

Those donations will go to clients of Suit Yourself’s social service agency partners: women who are entering or returning to the workforce — women who need appropriate clothing for interviews and to wear on the job but, right now, can’t afford to buy it.

Suit Yourself volunteers work with their clients to build personal wardrobes — coats, suits, blazers/jackets, pants, skirts, blouses/tops, shoes, boots, purses, billfolds/wallets, scarves, belts, jewelry — that will show them at their best for job interviews and returning to work.

For more information about how to donate and what happens to your donations, click here. To download a Suit Yourself donation form, click here.

When and Where to Donate

Suit Yourself accepts donations, from 10 a.m. until noon on the first Saturday of each month, at 47 West Walnut Avenue in Painesville (map).

The currently scheduled donation day is Saturday, August 2. Donation days for the rest of 2016 are:

  • Saturday, August 2
  • Saturday, October 1
  • Saturday, November 5
  • Saturday, December 3

Other Donations, Volunteer Inquiries Welcome

Financial donations, which are of course welcome at any time and are used to purchase non-donated items such as hosiery, may be mailed to Suit Yourself, P.O. Box 574, Painesville, Ohio 44077.

Suit Yourself also welcomes inquiries from potential volunteers. For information about volunteering, click here.

Donate clothing to Suit Yourself: help someone find a job, and keep usable clothing out of the landfill.
