There were so many items collected, an SUV was used to make the delivery.

In April, employees in Baltimore and Lanham “sparked joy” by donating old clothes to a good cause. For the past few years the branches have participated in the Franciscan Center’s Attire 4 Hire program, and this year the participation was bigger and better than ever!

The Franciscan Center is a one-stop shop for families and individuals in crisis, helping them to achieve stability in difficult times and begin building self-sufficient lives. Attire-4-Hire provides professional clothing for job interviews, graduations or other formal occasions.

This year’s donations far surpassed what was expected and came just in time, as the program was getting very low on professional clothing.

The Maryland branches collected more than 30 suits, 15 dresses, 25 sport coats and approximately 70 dress shirts. Some of the items had never been worn and still had tags attached. Other items collected included coats, sweaters, jackets, dress shoes, belts, ties, scarves and more!

Great work, Team Graybar!
