It was a success last year, and organizers are hoping for another big clothing collaboration.
Starting Sept. 10, CBRE will hold its second annual citywide business clothing drive.
The clothing drive, “PurSUIT of SUCCESS,” offers gently used business attire for men and women. It benefits two nonprofit organizations, Fresh Start Women’s Foundation and St. Joseph the Worker.
It is also the largest business clothing drive in Metro Phoenix.
The two organizations provide job training, career counseling and emotional support to both women and men in Metro Phoenix. The organizations aim to give men and women the tools they need to succeed in the business world by giving them confidence and a positive self-image.
In 2011 people donated more than 3,900 apparel items to PurSUIT of SUCCESS. With eight additional drop-off locations throughout Metro Phoenix this year, CBRE officials say they believe people will be able to donate even more.
CBRE’s office is located at 2415 E. Camelback. Drop offs can be made Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. until the drive ends on Sept. 21.
In addition to the main donation area, 21 CBRE-managed buildings in Chandler, Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale and Mesa are also accepting clothing donations.
