BOZEMAN–Montana State University's Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship is seeking donations of gently used men’s business attire for the Executive's Closet, a program designed to help MSU business students achieve an affordable, professional look.

As part of the program, donated professional men’s clothing is distributed to students to wear to job and internship interviews and first jobs. Since 2011, the Executive's Closet has provided business clothing to more than 1,000 students.

The college is accepting donations of gently worn and current executive business attire for men. Items include:  suits, ties, jackets, shirts, sweaters, socks, dress shoes, overcoats, sports coats and belts. All donations are tax deductible.

Donations will be accepted until Aug. 22. The Executive’s Closet will be open to students Sept. 2-3 in the Bracken Center for Excellence in Undergraduate Business Education located in MSU's Reid Hall. 

For more information about the project, or to make a donation, contact Linda Ward at (406) 994-1995 or lward@montana.edu.
