Thank you, thank you to all of our donors and volunteers
2020 was a good year for Suits For Success and we will have a better year in 2021.
Despite many of our Donation Sites being shut down and many prisons periodically on lock down we were able to deliver over 12,600 clothes. In addition to the State of Illinois DOC we opened up Wisconsin DOC, Illinois Juvenile and The DuPage County Correctional facility in Winfield. With your cash donations and clothes donations we were able to make this possible. In addition we grew our ranks of volunteers to 14.
We are now paying to clean the clothes we have donated so please keep those $$ rolling in and the insurance falls due in January 2021.
So here is to a Happy and Healthy New Year. ... See MoreSee Less
