Dress For Success

test 003-2

What happens when a man has everything?

A talent. A skill. Experience and education. The willingness and desire to begin working again and to be a productive part of the community. What happens when a man has all of these things except the proper attire to put them into action?

Nothing.

At Clifton Sanctuary Ministries we are so proud of what we call “The Clifton Look”. That is, we strive to build and maintain a clothing closet that can meet the needs of the guests we serve. We firmly believe that a new start can only happen with the right tools.

So often on the journey our guests are making there are roadblocks. As hard as we try and with all the love and gifts you give us, we just can’t always supply these men with what they need to move forward out of homelessness. Perhaps when you want to contribute you may use this page as a way of making your donation personal.

Our guests need gently used business attire.  Suits, dress shirts, dress slacks, good dress shoes, dress socks, neckties. Our guests especially need these items in larger sizes.

You, our supportors and friends, have been so helpful to us in so many ways. And so, if we may ask you for one more thing it would be to think BIG.

Big as in sizes XL, XXL, XXXL.  sizes 42 through 52 long suits. As well as shoes that range from size 9 through 14 wide.

We don’t know if the saying ,”Clothes make the man” is true or not… But we do know that the right clothes can help get a man back on his feet.

HERE ARE SOME CURRENT REQUESTS:

A guest who has found employment needs a gently used 42 Long business suit to wear to his new job.

We have a really great guy all set to go on job interviews but he needs a size 5X dress shirt and size 14 regular width shoes.
