BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn-based non-profit organization is coming to the rescue to help high school seniors as they enter the workforce.
Suit Dreams collects donated suits from community members and private organizations, and gives them to high school students who may need them for prom and job interviews after they graduate.
Bushwick resident Jerrell Horton, who is president of the organization, says he has partnered with schools like the Cobbile Hill School of American Studies since 2011. He says that in both New York and Chicago, Ill., the organization has given out about 1,500 suits.
