On September 20, 2013 at Citi Field in Queens, New York – Be A Hero-Hire A Hero will be hosting one of their largest Veteran Career Expos to date. Prior to the event and in partnership with Save-A-Suit Foundation we will be donating $1,000,000 worth of suits to 2,000 veterans in preparation for their job search that day! For our Female Veterans Fatigues to Fabulous will be presenting make up artists and hair dressers as well as wardrobe consulting.
All veterans regardless of age or gender are eligible to receive a suit. However, in order to participate in this amazing event Veterans MUST register at: www.saveasuit.org/register
If a veteran does not register prior to the event, they cannot receive a suit from Save-A-Suit the day of the event.
Once a Veteran registers at: www.saveasuit.org/register a confirmation notice will be EMAILED as your receipt to receive a suit. Should a Veteran not have email or access to a computer – they can call 1-855-SAV-SUIT and leave a voice-mail to register. A Save-A-Suit representative will call back to secure registration. In this event- Veterans must provide the telephone number of their affiliated Veterans Service Organization so that Save-A-Suit can be in contact with them prior to the event.
For Suit Drives:
For companies interested in holding a suit drive, please contact Save-A-Suit to ensure collection occurs in a timely manner prior to the deadline. Dates must be confirmed and recorded for our filings. Save-A-Suit requires an in-kind financial donation along with the drive to offset costs of dry cleaning and storage prior to the event (suggested resources: fundraisers, employees provide a small donation along with suits, or companies donate directly.) Once dates are determined, boxes are stationed at the company for the time frame agreed upon. Tax forms will be provided in which all donors must fill out in order claim donations as tax deductions.
There are also very strict guidelines on donating items:
