This Thanksgiving season, the Sigma Rho chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. has exemplified the spirit of giving by generously donating nearly 100 suits to Jackets for Jobs, a nonprofit organization committed to empowering individuals through professional attire and career development. The fraternity’s timely contribution aligns with Jackets for Jobs’ mission to distribute suits, turkeys, and ties to men in need during the holiday season, truly embodying the essence of being a blessing to Detroit men.
Jackets for Jobs, a long-standing pillar in the community for 23 years, primarily serves women, with 70% of its clients being female. The donation from Omega Psi Phi will significantly impact the support provided to men and veterans in a substantial way, further reinforcing the ongoing commitment of men supporting Jackets for Jobs in its noble cause.
The history of Jackets for Jobs is deeply intertwined with Detroit’s leadership, as every Detroit Mayor, from Kwame Kilpatrick to Mike Duggan, has graciously donated a suit to champion the organization’s mission. Notably, the family of Detroit’s first black Mayor, Coleman A. Young, has contributed to his cherished suit, enriching Jackets for Jobs’ historical collection.
