Dress for Success clothing drive

Annual Business Attire Clothing Drive 

January 24-31, 2018

Beginning Wednesday, January 24, Princeton University is conducting its annual clothing drive to benefit Dress for Success,  HomeFront’s Suitably Dressed, UIH’s Operation Fatherhood, and Mercer Street Friends, all Mercer County organizations that collect “gently used” business attire for men and women.
Organized by the Office of Community and Regional Affairs, this year's drive will also be supporting Tiger Threads, a clothing lending program offered through Princeton University’s Career Services for Princeton University students in need of professional attire for job interviews. 
All clothing go to help individuals who are entering or re-entering the workforce and all types of business and business-casual clothing in good condition are needed. These include suits, dress slacks, khakis, dress shirts, collared casual shirts, blazers, skirts, sweaters, dresses, jackets, coats, ties, shoes, belts, jewelry, handbags and other accessories. We will also be collecting used eyeglasses to donate to Lions Club International.
The drive will also be collecting unwanted stuffed toys. All toys will be donated to Glad Dogs Nation, an organization that creates safe dog toys from old, unwanted children’s stuffed toys. To learn more about Glad Dogs Nation visit

Items can be brought to 350 Alexander Street between the hours of 8 and 9 a.m. and 12:30 and 1:30 p.m., weekdays, January 24 through January 31.
