About Boots To Suits:
Established on Veterans Day 2014, is a non-profit clothing program located in Richmond, Virginia which provides complimentary apparel to transitioning men and women Veterans who are leaving the military and re-entering civilian life. By partnering with the Virginia Transitioning Assistance Program, McGuire’s Veteran’s Hospital, and the Virginia Employment Commission, we are serving Veterans from every corner of our state. To date, the program has helped hundreds of Veterans by outfitting them with two career outfits enabling them to look and feel their best for their interviews and non-military work environments. Military spouses of Wounded Warriors who are job-seeking and are the primary household provider are also eligible for this opportunity. To keep our program running, we accept cash donations, corporate/ foundation grants, along with gently used apparel donated by individuals or company clothing drives within the community.
Please go to our website: www.BootsToSuits.org or contact us at 804- 401-5188 for more information about this exceptional program and how and where you can donate.
