Veterans are getting help to look their best for job interviews.

A clothes drive is being held this week to provide veterans with gently used professional attire.

The drive was created when organizers of a veteran's hiring fair realized that many veterans who have transitioned out of the military do not have clothes in which to conduct professional interviews or business.

It’s a collaboration with the office of state Senator Jose Rodriguez, the Family Endeavors Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic, and the El Paso Veterans One-Stop Center.

"Great things occur when we collaborate to meet the needs of our veterans, who have honorably served our community and country. Hopefully, this drive will help local veterans in their search for employment.," said Sen. José Rodríguez

People can drop off gently used suits, dress jackets, shoes, ties, dress skirts, dress shirts and other items.

The drive runs through March 30.

Clothes can be dropped off at the following locations:

The office of Senator Jose Rodriguez at 100 N. Ochoa St. Suite A

Steven Cohen Military Family Clinic at Family Endeavors at 1390 George Dieter Drive Suite 140

El Paso Veterans One-Stop Center at 9565 Diana Drive
