The Problem

Under the facilitation of our Student Council, the students, staff and parents will contribute clean: button-down shirts, jackets, ties, slacks and suits for men seeking employment in our community...with focus on those being released from jail. Recycling, repurposing, refurbishing.clothing...

Our Plan

For the remaining time in May and all of June 2019, we will collect clothing in bins. We will sort through them, clean and launder the gently-used items, hang others on hangars and prepare one full interview outfit for a man.https://qns.com/story/2017/11/14/young-men-receive-free-suits-and-ties-in-jamaica/
