SHREVEPORT, La. – Men’s clothing can be hard to find when facing homelessness or financial problems. That is why the Highland Center has free closets for men, women and children.
While donations flow in for women and children, the men’s closet is currently facing a severe shortage.
Simple items like socks, belts and jeans go a long way helping people while they’re living on the streets, or to dress professionally for a job interview.
Men are offered three outfits: three pairs of pants, shirts, socks and undergarments.
The men’s closet needs more than suit jackets and khakis– they need everything from plain T-shirts to blue jeans.
Pants ranging from sizes 32, 36 and 38 and shoes sizes 9 to 13 are needed the most. There are no shoes, ties, belts or basic accessories that are needed for men to go to a job interview.
