Goodwill and local real estate firm helping folks “SUITUP”

The “SUITUP” program aims to provide professional attire to get folks back in the local workforce.

Goodwill and local commercial real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer are partnering for a professional clothing drive that’s aiming to get folks back in the workforce.

The program, called “SUIT UP,” entails collecting gently-used business clothing for the next five weeks at Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer’s corporate headquarters at 11100 West Broad Street in Short Pump.

Anyone wishing to make a donation of suits, slacks, blouses and other professional attire may do so using a dropbox located at the company’s headquarters.

Thalhimer plans to expand the partnership with Goodwill throughout the year, to include things like mentorship, interview preparation and resume writing. Associates from both firms will work with people to develop their employment skills and train them to work successfully in a variety of industries outside of Goodwill.

“Goodwill appreciates Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer’s commitment to our mission, said Charles D. Layman, Goodwill President and CEO. “Their efforts now to make career clothing accessible to our clients in conjunction with their interest in providing mentoring to them will only increase the success of our Goodwill programs.”
