FREMONT, Calif., Oct. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This Fall, Tailored Brands, Inc. (NYSE:TLRD) and its subsidiaries, Men's Wearhouse, Jos. A. Bank, K&G Fashion Superstore, and Canadian retailer Moores Clothing for Men, are joining the fight against cancer. Knowing that cancer affects our customers, our employees, and their families, we are focused on supporting the Movember Foundation, the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. and the Canadian Cancer Society to promote awareness and raise funds for both men's and women's health and cancer research.
Men's specialty clothing retailers, Men's Wearhouse, Jos. A. Bank and Moores Clothing for Men, have committed to donating $100,000 each to the Movember Foundation. Movember is the only global charity focused solely on men's health, funding projects focusing on prostate and testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. In addition to the financial support for the charity, each retailer is offering customers a special Movember deal starting November through December. Customers who sign up on Movember.com will receive a coupon for a free custom shirt with the purchase of a custom suit. Show your personal Movember Mo Space page or email from Movember.com at any of these retailers to receive the offer.
"Movember partners have played an extraordinary role in a mission that has helped the Foundation create more than 1,200 men's health projects in 21 countries," said Adam Garone, co-founder and U.S. Country director at the Movember Foundation. "Our partnership with Tailored Brands will allow us to expand our brand awareness and reach new audiences – all in an effort to ultimately help men live happier, healthier, longer lives."
In continuing to raise awareness for cancer research, our brands are participating in October's National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Men's Wearhouse, Jos. A. Bank and K&G Fashion Superstore will be contributing $50,000 each to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. Canada based Moores Clothing for Men will also be contributing $50,000 to the Canadian Cancer Society. Funds will go towards helping to provide assistance and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education, and support services.
"We are thankful for Tailored Brands' support of our mission of Helping Women Now," said NBCF Founder and CEO, Janelle Hail. "Their donation will help us provide life-saving services to women in need all across the country."
"I am proud of how our brands are coming together to nurture our community and support such worthy causes," said Doug Ewert, CEO of Tailored Brands, Inc.
