Suiting Warriors Foundation works in collaboration with like minded organizations, grass roots non-profits, government agencies and national and local veterans’ outreach organizations in order to connect with veterans and their families in providing an additional tool to help for a successful transition into civilian workforce. The SWF is 100% volunteer driven and is currently establishing local committees in each state to focus on goals of program development, communications, events and fundraising providing new and donated professional attire to veterans living in Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
The Suiting Warriors Foundation has future goals to expand support across the nation including individual states participating as Team Warriors. Each state will have its own Team Warriors committee including SWF state fundraising goals. If you would like to be apart of a growing team in your community please contact SWF. The Suiting Warriors Foundation is a non-profit fund administered by the Delaware Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization.
Being in the military means accepting great risks of loss, grief, handicap and many other struggles. The courage of military personnel should be forever commendable. That’s why Suiting Warriors is passionate about providing them with a service of special thanks. We only accept professional clothing in ‘like new’ (gently worn) condition. All clothing must be recently dry cleaned on hangers. Our veterans will be receiving the clothing for job interviews, special occasions, a new career or a funeral. We want them to be able to choose an outfit and feel good wearing it immediately without much hassle. If we receive your garments uncleaned to our standards the foundation pays $1.75 for each garment to be cleaned. Please help make our job easier by dry cleaning them before donating.
For Women: suits, blazers, pants, professional dresses, skirts, purses, outerwear coats/jackets
For Men: suits, sportcoats, pants/trousers, ties, tie clips, cuff links, wallets, outerwear coats/jackets (no shirts unless new)
