James from Bronx, New York

I was laid off a seasonal retail job; w/ a suit I have a better chance at interviews.

I'm currently unemployed but have retail experience (I worked at Macy's at a seasonal position). I'm looking for help to get a suit for interviews.

My need and situation

My name is James, I'm a 25 year-old man. I am currently unemployed but I am interested in getting back to working in retail. I was recently employed by Macy’s Department Store, Herald Square, as sales person. I was laid off because it was a seasonal position.

I plan on finding employment in the retail but I just need to have dress clothes so I can look presentable for a interview. I plan on paying bills that I am behind on and become more self sufficient.

I already have a experience in the retail field and I was a very good employee. I just need dress clothes so I can look presentable for my interviews. I currently don't have any source of income, which makes it very hard for me to get a suit on my own. I asking for 200.00 so I can get a suit.

If I am able to get the dress clothes that I need, it will make it more possible to get employment even if its not in retail.

I know James through my colleague, P.O. Bertrand. James has been on his caseload for several years and has been doing a good job of staying out of trouble, since he was sentenced to probation. James has been active in his search for employment but he has not been confident because of his appearance. With the help of Benevolent donors he can reach his goal of having dress clothes so he can get his confidence back and have a better chance of getting employment, knowing that he looks the part for the job.
