Suits for Session

Volunteer Florida is proud to announce the fourth annual Suits for Session service project. Suits for Session engages legislators and staff, state agency employees and other local professionals to collect new or gently-worn business attire. This year, the items will be donated to organizations in the Florida Panhandle that are supporting individuals re-entering the workforce after Hurricane Michael. Tallahassee residents and visitors are invited to drop off clothing donations at the Capitol on April 11th. Those who are unable to visit the Capitol in person can still participate in Suits for Session by using the Uber app between 9 am and 4 pm (ET) that day. Simply select “GIVE” at the bottom of the screen, and an Uber driver will pick up and deliver donated clothing.
