Each January the Office of Community and Regional Affairs conducts a clothing drive to benefit HomeFront's Suitably Dressed, Mercer County Community College Career Training Institute, R.I.S.E., and Operation Fatherhood of Trenton, Mercer County organizations who collect gently used business attire for men and women.
The clothing go to men and women who are entering or re-entering the workforce, and all types of business and business casual clothing in good condition are needed. This includes suits, dress slacks, khakis, dress shirts, collared-casual shirts, blazers, skirts, sweaters, dresses, jackets, coats, ties, belts, shoes, jewelery, handbags, used eye glasses, and other accessories.
In addition, we will 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 www.gladdogsnation.com.
