Foundation is proudly partnering with Jill Merriam, Dealer For The
People®, for the Soldiers-to-Civilians Suit Drive, collecting gently
worn suits and professional
office clothing for local veterans at Connecticut's Key Hyundai of
Milford and Key Hyundai of Manchester. The suit drive ends July 2, in
order to outfit and honor Connecticut veterans at the fireworks
extravaganza July 3rd at the Westfield CT Post Mall in
Jill Merriam, owner of Key Hyundai and Dealer For The People®, together
with friends WEBE108 and the Westfield CT Post Mall Milford, are
promoting the Suits for Soldiers collection, with CT Key Hyundai
locations in Milford and Manchester | Vernon as primary
collection sites for donations of gently worn suits, professional
clothing, shoes, and accessories (guidelines attached below).
Donate gently worn professional office-type clothing to the
Solders-to-Civilian Suit Drive at both Key Hyundai of Manchester and
Key Hyundai of Milford until July 2.
Local Connecticut veterans desperately need professional clothing as
they transition from soldier to civilian. With unemployment among the
highest for veterans returning from war in Iraq and Afghanistan, the
work the Save-A-Suit Foundation does is absolutely amazing.
Key Hyundai of Milford and Key Hyundai of Manchester are honored to be
donation sites to support this great cause helping veterans look the
part so that they feel the part, and have a better chance at pursing
their civilian career goals.
Key Hyundai has set a goal of 50 suits for each dealership: 50 for the
greater Hartford area, and 50 for Connecticut shoreline and valley.
"Key Hyundai will match suit donations up to 100 suits,"
said Jill Merriam, Dealer For The People, "and I can't wait to make
that happen. Our goal is 50 for each location, and our employees and
customers are pumped to participate! Our mission is to
provide solutions, and Save-a-Suit is clearly doing that for perhaps
our country's most deserving group."
All clothing donations are completely tax-deductable, and the feeling of
generosity completely contagious! Consider donating to this great
for complete details.
Join Key Hyundai on July 3rd in a blockbuster event: “Soldiers to
Civilians” Day at the Connecticut Post Mall Milford
Fireworks Extravaganza, honoring local Connecticut veterans.
