City Personnel is proud to announce the first annual ‘Suit Up, RI!™’ initiative.

City Personnel, a boutique recruitment firm in Providence, in conjunction with the Clothing Collaborative will be running a professional clothing drive beginning April 2nd and running through April 20th. The Suit Up RI initiative will be challenging companies throughout Rhode Island and Southern Massachusetts to collect the most articles of professional clothing and accessories. All of the collected pieces will be donated to the Clothing Collaborative’s closets to help the disadvantaged population of RI to find employment and build self-esteem. It’s widely known that Rhode Island has been battling one of the worst unemployment rates in the country since its peak at 11.9% in January, 2010 (U.S. Department of Labor Statistics). Presently the unemployment rate in RI is only down to 11%. Suit Up RI hopes to slash this number even further. City Personnel has set a personal goal of 5,000 pieces of clothing for this drive, let’s see what this state can do when we join forces and really work together! For additional information or if you want to get involved please contact either Brittany Bert or Kerri Thornsbury at 401.331.2311 or by e-mail at suitupri@citypersonnel.net.
