It’s Not Just a Suit.
It’s a Fighting Chance
Save A Suit is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides veterans and transitioning service members with business suits, professional attire, and other clothing resources they need to achieve job security.
There are currently over 1,000 veterans waiting to receive a care package. By contributing to our charity, you’re offering a lifeline support to those who bravely served our nation, creating a powerful bond that transcends words and echoes the profound impact of giving back.
You can make a difference in the lives of our veterans.
We extend a warm invitation to local veterans to attend our Suits & Salutes events, dedicated to veterans in the tri-state area. These regional gatherings offer veterans an exclusive VIP suiting experience (think of a pop-up shop where everything is provided free of charge). The primary objective of these events is to cultivate a positive and uplifting atmosphere, fostering a sense of appreciation as veterans and the community join forces to honor and celebrate our servicemen and women.
While our roots lie in Connecticut, our commitment to serving veterans extends nationwide. We dispatch care packages, complete with suits and clothing, to veterans across the country, reaching as far as Hawaii and the North Pole in Alaska. No distance is too great for us, as evidenced by the 1,000 veterans eagerly awaiting their care packages. Your donation can make a significant impact, allowing us to deliver even more care packages to deserving veterans in need.
Your donation is more than clothing or a financial contribution; it’s a powerful bridge that forges connections and empowers our veterans. As you give, you’re not just providing assistance; you’re creating a profound bond that resonates with the strength and resilience of those who have served our nation. Your generosity becomes a source of empowerment, transforming both the lives of our veterans and the very essence of your giving into a deeply cathartic experience.

I have a wife and two daughters I am trying my hardest to get the right job, with my military background and I am currently in school on track to attain my degree. I have been unemployed since my separation in 2020. The suit would be a blessing.
Christian F.Kansas, U.S. Air Force
I am first generation who is in the military from my family. I am looking to get a job in the outside world after spending 20 years in the military and giving up so much of me to my country. I would like to have something to make myself look/feel good.
Bani P.Virginia, U.S. Navy
I want to be able to put my best foot forward as I attend job interviews. I am currently unemployed, and I am low on income. A suit would place me at an advantage in future job interviews. Any help is appreciated.
