The PCC Men’s Resource Center reported last week that its second annual “Best Foot Forward Professional Clothing Drive” was a major success.

According to Nicholas Vick, PCC Director of Tutoring and Academic Success and an MRC advisor, PCC employees and members of the community donated nearly 500 professional men’s clothing items as part of this year’s drive, which is part of MRC’s effort to assist PCC male students with their search for employment.

“The clothing drive allows students an opportunity to select professional clothes for free and better their chances of future employment,” Vick said. “Hopefully, the students realize that we are concerned with not only their success at the college but their success in the future as well.”

On April 8, the apparel, which included suits, dress shirts, sport coats, ties and shoes, was made available to students in the makeshift “Best Foot Forward Clothing Store,” which was set up in the Craig F. Goess Student Center. Vick said most of the 88 students who dropped by the store were able to pick out a complete professional outfit to wear to job interviews.

“I was impressed and grateful for the outstanding community and college support of this event,” Vick said. “The drive is a chance for faculty, staff, and community members to contribute to the development of students at PCC.”

Vick said students who benefitted from the drive were very appreciative and encouraged the MRC to host it again next year.
