Dedham - Recently, the Norfolk Registry of Deeds, as part of its “Suits for Success” program, donated boxes and racks of clothing and shoes to Interfaith Social Services in Quincy.
The “Suits for Success” program, developed by Register William O’Donnell, in partnership with several local charities, collects donations of suitable clothing to be distributed to groups like the Interfaith Social Services and to individuals who may need appropriate attire for employment interviews.
The Interfaith Social Services, located at 105 Adams Street in Quincy, is a non-profit group with 8 staff members and over 100 volunteers that for more than sixty years has provided a variety of services to members of the community who may need assistance with various social needs.
