BATON ROUGE (AP) — Got a suit buried in the back of the closet that you're not using?

Louisiana's corrections department is looking for professional clothing to give to men and women leaving prison who need something to wear for job interviews.

The department is asking for donations as part of the sixth annual National Suit Drive, a partnership with Refined by Fire Ministries and Men's Wearhouse.

Sixteen Men's Wearhouse locations around the state are accepting donations of used and cleaned clothing items, including suits, dress shirts, sports coats, shoes, jackets, ties and belts for both men and women.

Donations will be accepted until July 31. Donors receive a 50 percent coupon for future purchases at the store and a tax receipt.
