Campaign collects suits for soldiers

Posted

Members of the military who are trying to transition into the civilian workforce received free suits and business attire at an event in Lone Tree last week.

The clothing was collected by the Farmers Insurance Suits for Soldiers national campaign and was distributed Feb. 16 and 17 at Public Service Credit Union on Park Meadows Drive. The credit union also hosted workshops on resume writing and interviewing.

Thomas Swenson, a local Farmers Insurance agent, sponsored the campaign by accepting clothing donations at his office, according to a news release.

“We all have a chance to contribute and have a real impact on someone else’s life,” he said.

More than 500 suits and pieces of business attire were expected to be distributed in Lone Tree. The campaign has resulted in the nationwide collection of more than 70,000 articles of clothing, the release stated.
