Local attorney donates to kick off Men of Honor clothing drive

01.22.2015 | By Andrea Vasquez

The San Jacinto College Men of Honor mentoring organization recently received a large donation of men’s career attire from Houston attorney, Daniel Snooks.

Snooks donated six suits, seven pair of slacks, five dress shirts, five ties, and one sports coat. The career attire will go toward the Men of Honor clothing drive, assisting student members in clothing for job interviews. Clothing will also be donated to each campus Career Closet, as well as Cenikor, a residential recovery facility in Deer Park that provides residents with behavioral health care services.

Last April, the Men of Honor clothing drive brought in 45 men's blazers and sport coats, 15 suits, 100 pair of pants, 60 dress shirts, 80 T-shirts, 15 pairs of shoes, 15 belts, and socks. Women’s clothing included four suits, more than 40 tops, 20 pair of pants (including jeans), and 30 pair of shoes.

The College-wide clothing drive will kick off in February and continue throughout the month of March. Items needed include men’s dress shoes, belts, suits, sport coats, and slacks. The Rotary Club of Space Center is also joining the effort by holding a clothing drive to support Men of Honor as well.

A clothing donation drop-off location will be available at the San Jacinto College North Campus in room N7.226 of the Burleson building. The North Campus is located at 5800 Uvalde Road in Houston. For clothing donation drop-offs at the Central and South Campuses, or more information on the Men of Honor organization, please contact Ronald Hopkins at 281-459-5404 or ronald.hopkins@sjcd.edu, or visit sanjac.edu/MOH.
