BEVERLY HILLS, CA - Farmers Insurance® has launched its nationwide “Suits for Soldiers” program to help active duty military personnel transition to civilian work and life.
Rodeo Realty supports its veterans and is helping Assemblymember Matt Dababneh collect donated suits for the program through a clothing drive.
From October 24 to November 22, residents can stop by four Rodeo Realty offices (Encino, Northridge, Woodland Hills, and Calabasas) and drop off gently used and dry cleaned suits for men and women.
The Assemblymember hopes to at least collect 45 suits through the drive.
“Many of our veterans have trouble getting or maintaining employment simply because they are missing appropriate business attire,” states Assemblymember Dababneh. “Together, we can solve this problem. That is why I encourage all Valley residents to participate in the “Suits for Soldiers” clothing drive, so we give a little back to those that have served our country so bravely.”
More than one million military personnel will be making the transition from the military in the next couple of years, according to the Department of Defense office of Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, and many of these veterans may not own appropriate business attire to go to networking events, interviews or even to work. Each piece of clothing donated brings “Suits for Soldiers” closer to its goal of collecting 50,000 suits that can help create an easier transition for veterans into the civilian workforce.
Donated suits can be dropped off at the following Rodeo Realty locations:
17501 Ventura Blvd.
Encino, CA 91316
9338 Reseda Blvd., Suite 102
Northridge, CA 91324
21031 Ventura Blvd., Suite 100
Woodland Hills, CA 91364
