‘Santa Brings a Law Suit’ drive

The Tulsa County Bar Foundation and the Tulsa County Bar Association is launching its “Santa Brings a Law Suit” clothing drive for the holidays. The drive annually gives business attire to men and women in need so they can make the best possible impression during a critical job interview or their first day of work.

The legal community is “well suited” for this task as many of them wear professional attire every day, a spokesman said. They are asking for donations of suits, dresses, skirts, blouses, dress pants, shirts, ties, belts, shoes, etc. The drive began on November 14 and ends December 9. Clothing can be dropped off at the Tulsa County Bar Association at 1446 S. Boston, Ave., and at Riggs, Abney, Neal, Turpen, Orbison & Lewis, 502 W. 6th St. during business hours.

All items should be clean, on hangers and ready to wear. At the end of the drive, TCBF officials will deliver the clothing to John 3:16 Mission, the Salvation Army and Women in Recovery.

Tax receipts are available if you leave your name, mailing address and a description of the items donated.

“Let’s have a wonderful holiday season and build on the past success of this drive by cleaning out our closets and helping Tulsans get back to work,” a spokesman said.
