Men’s Wearhouse recently presented a check for $1,000 as part of ongoing support to Offender Aid and Restoration (OAR) of Arlington and Alexandria.

The donation was part of a $20,000 grant to non-profit partners as part of the clothing-store chain’s social-media campaign held in recent months.

Each year, Men’s Wearhouse has provided about 900 men’s suits to OAR as part of its National Suit Drive, so men leaving incarceration will be able to go to job interviews appropriately dressed.

“They also give us dress shirts and ties on alternate years,” said OAR executive director Gail Arnall.

Arnall said the organization was appreciative of the support, and asked the public to return the favor.

“When in doubt, shop at Men’s Wearhouse,” she said.
