Press Release ~ Norfolk County Register of Deeds William P. O'Donnell Promotes Suits for Success Program
Norfolk County Register of Deeds William P. O'Donnell today reaffirmed the Registry's commitment to supporting the successful Suits for Success program in partnership with Interfaith Social Services of Quincy, Father Bill's & MainSpring of Quincy and Brockton and the Boston Veterans Administration's Healthcare System Voluntary Service Program.
"By just looking in your closet or bureau, you can make a world of difference in someone's life," noted O'Donnell. Business appropriate clothing donations received through the Suits for Success program assist these organizations in providing clothes to men and women who are actively seeking employment.
Register O'Donnell stated, "Men and women who are attempting to re-enter the workforce need to make a good initial impression, whether it's the first day on the job or in an interview. I hope local residents and the business community will consider making a clothing donation to this worthy endeavor. The program is truly needed, and it provides a way to help a person's break their cycle of poverty."
Business appropriate attire for men and women will be accepted. Suggested donations include suits, dress shirts and ties for men and dresses, pantsuits, blouses, skirts and pants for women. All clothing should be ready for a person to wear, in-style, clean, press and on hangers. Since the Registry started the Suits for Success program in February of 2009 the Registry has collected 4,800 pieces of clothing.
To contribute, individuals need to bring their donated clothes to the Norfolk County Registry of Deeds, 649 High Street in Dedham between the hours of 9-5, Monday through Friday. If you reside in the Quincy area, you can drop off clothing directly to the Interfaith Social Services office located at 105 Adams Street, Quincy between 8:30 and 3:30 Monday through Friday, and until 7:00 pm on Tuesdays.
Register O'Donnell concluded, "Just by looking in your clothing drawers or closets, you can make an immeasurable difference in someone's life. It's a program that truly makes a difference in a person's life."
