    Help Veterans Transition to Civilian Life - Donate A Business Suit

    October 30, 2013

    Do you remember how hard your transition from college to a full-time job was? Now imagine the transition from soldier to civilian worker. Fatigues don’t make it in a corporate setting.  

    As a Yellow Ribbon school, Drexel is always interested in finding new ways to help our veterans. This year, Drexel’s MBA students are teaming up with Wharton’s MBA students to support Penn’s Veterans Upward Bound program to collect business clothing.

    The Drexel LeBow College of Business and Westphal College of Media Arts & Design are collecting business clothing – men’s and women’s. Items requested include: gently worn men’s and women’s business suits, women’s business dresses, dress shirts, ties, scarves and pocketbooks.

    Clothes will be collected from October 21st through November 8th at the following locations: 

    LeBow College of Business
    Gerri. C. LeBow Hall - 448
    3220 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA

    The Westphal College of Media Arts and Design
    URBN Center Lobby and Suite 310
    3501 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA

    Let’s help our veterans by making the transition to civilian life easier by donating a business suit. For more information, contact Donna Ferrari at dmf49@drexel.edu or 215-895-4928.
