Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- If you are doing some spring cleaning this week, clean out your closet for a good cause.

The Damiano Center inDuluth is seeking donations through the "Clothes That Work Program" to provide no-cost professional attire to job seekers and low-income workers.

The program was started 14 years ago and has dressed more than two thousand people for success.

Job seekers are given two outfits to attend job interviews and provided up to five outfits once they start their jobs.

"It helps us better help other people who are in our community, in our hometowns, get to work," said Patti Nadeau, Coordinator at the Damiano Center.

In addition to the Damiano Center, clothing can be dropped at the Republic Bank on Superior Street, the Sheraton Hotel, Duluth Police Department building and Northern Mechanical and Plumbing Contractors Association.

The clothing drive runs from April 22 through April 26.
