SAN DIEGO, Calif. | Apr. 22 /CSRwire/ – McKinney Capital & Advisory organized a suit drive for San Diego Rescue Mission as part of National Volunteer Month. The Suit Drive focused on aligning the corporate values of giving-back with the focus of helping others who are actively pursuing interviews, getting jobs, and supporting the San Diego community.
McKinney partnered with San Diego Rescue Mission and the career services program. The suits will be given to the graduates of the one year program as they embark on job interviews and gain employment in the community. Many of the graduates are must prioritize basic needs above new clothing. As a professional company, McKinney understands that a proper suit can help someone land a job interview or help someone feel confident at a new job.
Rachel McKinney, Corporate Social Responsibility Coordinator explained, “So much of what we do is to help companies grow and achieve their missions. This time we focused on helping an individual achieve their vision. We wanted to show our support and admiration for these individuals who are working hard to improve their lives through jobs, housing, and providing for their families. It’s just a simple act but means a lot to the recipient.”
It was also a great way to reach out to the business community, neighbors, and clients. McKinney simply offered to give those gently worn professional clothes in the back of the closet a new career. Many corporate partners arranged their own collection at their offices and McKinney picked them up as well as accepted donations at the San Diego corporate headquarters.
The final numbers collected over 50 men’s suits, 97 shirts, 41 pants, 72 ties, and 12 sweaters. Women’s totals were: 27 suits, 11 jackets, 13 dresses, 26 skirts, 26 pants, 44 tops, and 16 sweaters.
If you have clothing that could start a new career please donate to San Diego Rescue Mission. Their information can be found online: http://www.sdrescue.org/. McKinney is a proud supporter of San Diego Rescue Mission and their dedication to serving the poor in San Diego.
