100 Suits popped-up with another pop-up shop, this time in Harlem, NY. This event provided business wear, grooming sessions, and valuable resources to the men in need on the corner of 125th Street and Lenox Avenue.
100 Suits for 100 Men would like to thank Ashley Sharpton/National Action Network's Youth HUDDLE, Iesha Sekou, founder of Street Corner Resources and the Speak Peace Forward team for their dedication, hard work, and enduring the cold weather to help 100 Suits make the Harlem Pop-Up Shop a resounding success.
We'd specially like to thank Jay's Barber Shop on 159 West 145th St for donating their time to cut our men's hair at this event. The assistance we received speaks volumes and is a testament to community dedication. We humbly thank you all for caring!
What was supposed to be merely handing out business wear turned into a party like atmosphere with singers stopping by and leading participants in joyful music. 100 Suits thanks all or our supporters, particularly Senator Brian Benjamin and Marvin Holland, for caring enough to stand in the cold and support those in need.
100 Suits for 100 Men was founded in 2011 by Mr. Kevin Livingston that wanted to create a program to address the needs of underprivileged men and women in need of business attire in the New York City area.
This organization has grown to include programs that address more than a suit. 100 Suits addresses socio-economic issues as well as injustice issues with its community involvement and activism, making positive changes in the lives of men and women in the New York City area. These solutions help those individuals get to a place of economic freedom help to reduce recidivism rates.
