MIDDLETOWN, CT – Once again, Liberty Bank is partnering with Save-A-Suit and WTNH News Channel 8 to collect suits, blazers, ties, shirts, women's items, dresses, and shoes for veterans returning home from active duty. This initiative supports local military men and women as they go through the job interview process and seek long-term employment.
During November, some Liberty Bank branches will host drop-off sites for Save-A-Suit, a CT-based nonprofit dedicated to assisting local veterans as they step back into civilian life. The organization is led by Scott Sokolowski, Air Force Veteran, who is also the Save-A-Suit Founder and Board Chairman. Since inception in 2010, the nonprofit has distributed thousands of suits to veterans and students.

during their transition into the civilian workplace,” stated David W. Glidden,

customers and colleagues who are passionate about making sure our veterans are
fully prepared for the next chapter in their lives.”
This is the third annual Liberty Bank Save-A-Suit drive, led by Madison Branch Manager, Troy Bree. Last year, more than 4,000 items were collected by Liberty Bank and disbursed throughout Connecticut. "Our veterans made the ultimate sacrifice for us and this is one way of doing our part to help them move forward and succeed,” stated Troy Bree.
