If you have gently used men's and women's suits, shirts, jackets, ties, belts or shoes that you don't know what to do with, think about donating them.

Old Pueblo Community Services, which provides transitional housing to Tucson homeless, has partnered with Men's Wearhouse for the sixth annual National Suit Drive, a national collection of gently used business attire for men. The donations of gently used business attire will help give a fresh start to disadvantaged workers still facing unemployment.

Donations are being accepted through July 31 at Tucson area Men's Wearhouse locations - 90 W. River Road, 5628 E. Broadway and 4500 N. Oracle Road, #477. The items will also be distributed at the local Men's Wearhouse locations. 

The National Suit drive strives to battle unemployment by providing professional attire to those in need to help them regain confidence as they pursue a second chance. Old Pueblo Community Services helps job seekers prepare to re-enter the job market through resume building workshops, interview preparation and employment training programs. 

On a national level, Men's Wearhouse hopes to collect over 150,000 professional clothing items to benefit numerous charities across the country.

Follow the conversation on Twitter @MensWearhouse for real-time updates with #givesuit. For every National Suit Drive mention on Facebook and Twitter, Men's Wearhouse will contribute $1 (up to $20,000) to the cause.

Donors will receive a coupon for 50 percent off of regular price items for their next Men's Wearhouse purchase, as well as a tax receipt.
