Due to the generosity of countless Norfolk County residents, Register of Deeds William P. O’Donnell recently delivered a clothing donation, through its Suits for Success program, to InnerCity Weightlifting.
Register O’Donnell stated, “On behalf of the many kind and generous Norfolk County citizens, Registry staff and real estate professionals who contributed clothing, it was my pleasure to deliver these critically needed items to InnerCity Weightlifting.” The clothing donations included men’s clothing, shoes and ties.
InnerCity Weightlifting, founded in 2010, is a program designed to keep young people off the streets by using its weightlifting and gym facilities to create a community and network of support that encompasses education, job training and employment in the field of personal training.
On October 7, 2021 Reginald Talbert, Khyzhaun Peete and Nolisha Greer from InnerCity Weightlifting accepted a donation of men’s clothing and accessories to help individuals pursue their career opportunities from the Norfolk Registry of Deeds. Nolisha Greer, InnerCity Weightlifting Student Engagement Manager noted, “Today in society, we only get to see kindness on a rare occasion. Today I met two people who made a bunch of young men smile. Young men they have never met.”
The goal of the Suits for Success program is to help men and women reach economic independence and personal self-fulfillment. This year marks the tenth anniversary of the program at the Registry of Deeds. During that period Register O’Donnell has delivered more than 7,500 pieces of clothing. Besides InnerCity Weightlifting, other non-profits who have benefited from this program include Interfaith Social Services of Quincy, Father Bill’s & Mainspring of Quincy and Brockton and the Boston Veterans Administration Healthcare System Service program.
Those interested in making a clothing donation can schedule a drop off of new or gently used business appropriate clothing, professionally cleaned, Monday through Friday between 9:00AM-4:00PM at the Registry of Deeds building located at 649 High Street, Dedham, MA.
Register O’Donnell concluded by stating, “I again want to thank everyone for their continuing generosity in supporting the Suits for Success program. Having something in your closet that you no longer wear can make a world of difference in the life of someone else. It may just be the item that helps them get ahead in life.”
