HRDC Gives Away Free Suits

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

The Human Resources Development Council is a nonprofit organization that helps get men suited up for job interviews.

On Thursday they kicked off their 3rd Annual Suited for Success Drive.

The HRDC and Men's Wearhouse are partnering up to provide free suits and professional attire to men.

HRDC's Media Coordinator, Kat Healy said, "We have lots of guys come in who may not have professional attire and are looking for jobs, so we give them a chance to look their best and to find the right job for them."

Healy said that Men's Warehouse donated over 200 suits, and they even have Christian Dior, and Ralph Lauren on the racks.

A part time Cracker Barrel employee, Joshua Swan said he heard about it in the paper, and is looking for a second job.

"I don't actually currently have an outfit to actually look the part when I go in for interviews," said Swan.

Swan said he picked out the blue shirt and tie he's wearing because he liked the style.

"You know, I've been struggling the last year, and a half now with this whole thing, the job, and just some transitioning going on in my life," said Swan.

Swan said his favorite part is the free clothes.

"Of course I'm grateful, definitely grateful for that because it's a necessity," said Swan.

Swan said before he had to borrow a suit and tie from one of his family members, and now he can walk in his new attitude and apparel.

Healy said when the men walk out they felt like a new person. Healy also said the turnout was a success.
