Men’s Wearhouse Donates a Portion of All Suit Sales and Partners With Hire Heroes in Honor of U.S. Veterans
FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Men’s Wearhouse is proud to reinforce its commitment to serving those who have served our country in recognition of Veterans Day. From November 11–30, Men’s Wearhouse will donate a portion of every suit sold, up to $100,000, to Hire Heroes USA—a nonprofit organization that supports military members, Veterans and their spouses as they transition from military to civilian life.
In conjunction with Hire Heroes USA, Men’s Wearhouse builds on its tradition of helping customers look and feel great in the moments that matter by being a resource for U.S. Veterans as they prepare to enter the civilian workforce and begin their next chapter. To date, Men’s Wearhouse has donated more than $2 million to Hire Heroes USA to assist in their mission to transform military service into civilian success through their free, best-in-class career counseling programs, personalized training and mentoring, and job fairs. These donations have helped place more than 36,000 veterans and their spouses into secure employment. Customers, by shopping for a suit at any Men’s Wearhouse location or online at www.menswearhouse.com from November 11-30, have the opportunity to assist those who have served their country.
“Throughout our longstanding partnership, Men's Wearhouse has been a tremendous advocate and partner. The Company’s commitment to serving the military community is steadfast, and they continually provide outstanding resources and support to ensure Veterans and their families have the best career opportunities after service,” said Ross Dickman, Chief Operating Officer for Hire Heroes USA.
“Men’s Wearhouse is dedicated to showing up strong for our customers during all of life’s important moments—whether it’s the first day at a new job or an everyday occasion. Our ongoing partnership with Hire Heroes enables us to reinforce that commitment to service and, most importantly, honor and help those who have served the U.S. at a pivotal time in their lives,” said John Tighe, Chief Customer Officer for Tailored Brands, the parent company of Men’s Wearhouse.
Further advancing the Company’s mission to support the re-integration efforts of Veterans and their families, Men’s Wearhouse was also a premier sponsor and the sole apparel company at the Hire Heroes USA Virtual Career Fair on Thursday, November 4. The online fair provided a convenient and curated setting for transitioning service members, Veterans and military spouses to meet with potential employers and recruiters across a range of industries, while showcasing their skills firsthand. The free event was a success with more than 1,000 attendees.
