Sacramento-area residents donated about 700 items to the first-ever State Capitol Suit Drive, which was held Tuesday at the Senator Hotel. The business suits, shoes, shirts, skirts and blouses will go to several local nonprofits: Crossroads Diversified/Works One Stop Career Center, Women's Empowerment, Overcomer's Program, and the Greater Sacramento Urban League.
Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, Assembly Speaker John A. PÃ©rez and the Men's Warehouse retail chain backed the drive, part of a national effort to provide business attire for the unemployed.
