Goodwill, Thalhimer partner to help job-seekers ‘Suit Up’

Goodwill and Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer are partnering for their inaugural professional clothing drive, a program called SUIT UP.

Through the program, Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer’s corporate headquarters at 11100 West Broad Street in Short Pump will be collecting gently-used business clothing for the next five weeks. An external dropbox is on location, and local residents are encouraged to make donations.

The partnership between Goodwill, which has helped people in Central Virginia with job-training, support and opportunities for more than 90 years, and Thalhimer, which has operated in the market for more than 100 years, was a natural fit, officials with both companies said.
