MURFREESBORO — In spring, a young college student’s fancy turns to the kind of clothes that can impress employers in job interviews.

That’s why MTSU is urging you to clean out your closets and donate your gently used professional clothing to Raiders’ Closet, the nonprofit service that provides students with professional attire.

The closet needs such items as suits, jackets, slacks, shirts, ties, skirts and scarves. Men’s dress shirts should be dry-cleaned and folded for storage on shelves. All other clothing items must be dry-cleaned and placed on hangers.

Donations are welcome anytime between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Department of Business Communication and Entrepreneurship office in Room N429 of the MTSU Business and Aerospace Building.

To make a clothing donation, contact Jaye Kiblinger at 615-898-2902 or Dr. Virginia Hemby-Grubb at 615-898-2369.

Monetary contributions to the Raiders’ Closet Foundation Fund also are welcome to help purchase needed items. For more information, call Kiblinger at 615-898-2902 or visit the MTSU Development and Foundation office website at http://www.mtsu.edu/development.
