Gentlemen’s Closet

St. Catherine Community helps men in need dress for success

The “Gentlemen’s Closet” was featured on three local television stations; KSLA TV 12, KTAL NBC 6, and KMSS FOX 33.  From this television coverage we have received donated suits from Minden, Mansfield, Bossier City, Haughton and Shreveport.

The “Gentlemen’s Closet” has fitted men with suits for job fairs, interviews, church functions, court and funerals.

We have assisted individuals referred to us from various local agencies, including Volunteers of America, Goodwill Industries Job Training, the Veterans Administration, Louisiana Association for the Blind, Veterans Hospital, The Kennedy Center and local neighborhood churches.
One interesting fact of note is that many donations come from area widows who have found solace in the fact that their deceased loved ones’ suits are helping those without in positive pursuits and church participation.

The Gentlemen’s Closet wishes to thank all who have donated the many fine suits. You are helping men to look good and feel good for interviews and other positive pursuits.

The “Gentlemen’s Closet” is open to assist on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m at the St. Catherine Community Center. For more information, call 318-865-9817.
