Dress for Success Donation Drive

J. Robert's Menswear Launches 'Dress for Success Drive' for Warhawk Success Closet

Local Menswear Store Supports Students by Collecting Professional Attire for UW-Whitewater Warhawk Success Closet

November 22, 2023

J. Robert's Menswear, a family-owned, local men's clothing store, is proud to announce the launch of its "Dress for Success Drive," a charitable initiative in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Career Services. From Black Friday (11/24) to Giving Tuesday (11/28), the store invites the community to donate gently used professional attire to benefit UW-Whitewater students in their career pursuits.

This initiative is particularly close to the heart of the store’s owner, Kyle, a 2022 alum of UW-Whitewater. "Our goal is to give back to the community and support the next generation of professionals," Kyle states. "We're thrilled to contribute to the Warhawk Success Closet, providing students with free access to the professional attire they need for interviews, internships, and career fairs."

Community members can donate their gently used professional attire at any of the three J. Robert's Menswear locations in Elkhorn or Janesville through Giving Tuesday. Accepted items include suits, shirts, ties, dress shoes, and more for males or females, all of which will be directly donated by Kyle to the Warhawk Success Closet at UW-Whitewater. Community members can also donate directly to UW-Whitewater.

As a token of gratitude, J. Robert's Menswear is offering a $2 store credit for each item donated at one of the store locations, up to a $50 limit per customer, redeemable through March 2024. "This is our way of thanking our community for their generosity and involvement in this important cause," says Kyle. The Dress for Success Drive is more than a clothing donation; it's an opportunity for the community to engage in a meaningful act of giving.
