Charity helps military veterans prepare for new jobs

A Bethel nonprofit spent all day Wednesday preparing for an event that they say will dress veterans for success.



The Save-A-Suit charity collects and donates professional clothing to men and women in the military.



The charity was started in Connecticut back in 2010 by an Air Force veteran who saw that there was a need. 



Suits are donated to veterans who need to go on job interviews. This Friday, the charity will hold an event where about 500 suits will be given out. 



Organizers say the mission of the charity is to serve those who have served the country.
