BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - A Brooklyn nonprofit is helping men who can't afford business attire look good for job interviews.

Kevin Livingston started the organization 100 Suits for 100 Men three years ago. He collects used business attire donations and distributes them for free to formerly incarcerated men and at-risk youth.

In the past three years, the organization has provided around 3,700 suits to men in Brooklyn and Queens.

"I come from humble beginnings and I really believe if we want to change our community, we have to be in their shoes and we have to go to them," says Livingston.

Livingston plans to expand his organization this summer and create 100 Suits for 100 Women to help more people pursue their dreams.
