Register 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 and Father Bill's & MainSpring of Quincy and Brockton.

"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. There have been approximately 3,000 pieces of clothing given to the Registry of Deeds in behalf of the program since 2009.

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. Having the right clothing can really build up someone's confidence and self-esteem. I hope local residents and the business community will consider making a clothing donation to this worthy endeavor. It is truly needed."

Business appropriate attire for men and women will be accepted. Suggested donations include suits, dress shirts and ties for men and dresses, suits, blouses, skirts and pants for women. All clothing should be ready to wear, in-style, clean, pressed and on hangers.

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. For more information about the Suits for Success program, or to schedule a drop-off time, please contact Alicia Gardner at (781) 461-6104 or by email [email protected].

Register O'Donnell concluded by saying, "There are many wonderful stories about people donating clothing throughout the years: whether it is a person who may have just retired and no longer will be wearing their business apparel, a wife who is looking for just the right place to donate her late husband's suits, or someone doing some "spring cleaning." It really is a win-win situation for everyone."
