( — June 30, 2013) Toronto, ON — Canadians are still suffering from a high unemployment rate — according to Statistics Canada, in May of 2013; more than 754,900 working-age males were unemployed across the country. In it’s fourth year, The Canadian Suit Drive is dedicated to helping men “suit up” for success.

Donors can bring men’s gently-used professional attire to more than one-hundred Moores locations around the country starting July 1 to July 31, which will go directly to helping unemployed workers in their local communities. This is the fourth year for the initiative; a program created to help low-income men from all backgrounds strive for self-sufficiency.
One of the devoted supporters is Canadian-born actor Steve Bewley. He stated, “It’s an honour to be a part of this charitable cause for the second year in a row.  I take great pride in this process…”

This year, Moores hopes to collect more than 50,000 much needed articles of clothing. “As the people at Moores state: “It takes only a split-second to make a first impression. I’ve been in many interviews in vastly differing settings, from the corporate business environment to auditions and castings within the entertainment and fashion industry, and what rings true is that first impression.”

By encouraging others to “give the suits off their backs” through the Canadian Suit Drive, Moores is helping unemployed workers put their best foot forward. Collected items are donated to more than sixty recipient organizations across the country, helping those looking for work “suit up” for success as they transition back into the workforce.

“I love the idea of helping people to look the part aesthetically when they may not have the means to do so, during what could very well be a key point in their lives and professional endeavours.” added Mr. Bewley

No matter how big or small their donation, all donors will receive a 50% off coupon to use at a Moores. They have 117 retail locations across the country.

All gently-used professional clothing items are welcome, including suits, shirts, pants, jackets, ties, belts, shoes, and accessories. Everything donated will go towards helping unemployed workers dress for success. Although men are the focus, Moores will accept donations for men and women.

Moores carries designer labels such as Calvin Klein, Jhane Barnes, Alfred Sung, Guy Laroche, Louis Féraud, J. Campbell Trend, Tommy Hilfiger and Lauren by Ralph Lauren. Launched in 1980, Moores Clothing for Men is the leading national retailer of men’s business attire in Canada with over 100 stores.  Moores’ stores carry a full selection of suits, sport coats, furnishings and accessories in exclusive and non-exclusive merchandise brands.


All donations to the Canadian Suit Drive will be delivered to one of the over 60 worthy recipient organizations across the country, which in turn will distribute the clothes to those transitioning back into the workforce.
