The suits are for high school and college students going on job interviews.

Young men who want to receive a suits are asked to perform one genuine random act of kindness for someone else.

Organizers collected more than 20 suits last year and hope to collect more than 50 this year.

“It's a great opportunity for the. There are many kids in this community, or young men, that are extremely smart that come from different circumstances. We don't want them to be missing out opportunities in a job interview or college interview because they simply don't have the proper attire to wear. That's really what we're about,” said Justin Thomas.

To donate a suit, you can mail it to, or drop it off at, 6263 Poplar Avenue, Suite 900 in Memphis.
